Mark Twain’s custom notebooks were clever!:
“He had his leather bound notebooks custom made according to his own design idea. Each page had a tab; once a page had been used, he would tear off its tab, allowing him to easily find the next blank page for his jottings.”
And, I think it’s pretty cool if all his notebooks had his name engraved on them! A different time.
I like this brand of “dog-ear” notebooks - “HUM” #stationery (more stationery porn to come)
Good for my eyes and brain to look at. I like the letterpress category.
This looks like something my grandpa Cecil used when he was my age.
This folder is legal sized so it’s not very practical for me. Love it though.
Retro Jam was giving out these cute postcards for free, to demonstrate their slick embossing.
I have thousands of these stickers (they were cheap) as well as stickers that just say FOREIGN. There’s a cynical joke to be made somehow with the foreign stickers, but I’m not in art school anymore. With these ones, I would have liked to put them on my books, but I never think they look good stamped onto my thin pamphlets. I am glad to say where my books are made, so I print the words instead.
Raymay’s new model is much improved from last year - and you can see I really gave mine a beating!
This ruler is the best. Beveled edge on one side, transparent across the whole ruler. One side starts measuring on the end of the ruler, one side starts 1/2 cm up. Works equally well upside down. mm are marked on the edges of the ruler. Clear and easy to read. 36 inches is the ideal size for working on B4 size paper. I can stuff this ruler in my portfolio and it won’t stick out one end.
