Yesterday I stopped by the Quo Vadis booth at the National Stationery Show, an event held every year at the Javits Center in New York. Actually, the booth was run by Exaclair Quo Vadis’s parent company so I got to see the full line-up of notebooks, stationery, pens, inks, and leather goods, as well. Among the cooler products was a kind of sealing wax called King’s Wax, which was originally manufactured for King Louis XIV of France and is still made today (scoll down to the middle of this page to take a closer look). I also saw the special kind of ink once used by Victor Hugo. How wonderful to see that these traditions are still alive today!
