Good stationery

Post Comment

I bought a set of letterpress cards the other day to send to a friend: blank, with whales on the cover. The drawings are so lovely, however, that I know I’ll have a hard time deciding what to do with the others.

Framed, they would make awesome art to hang in a bathroom or baby’s room. On the other hand, it’s not like I don’t have other friends who’d appreciate receiving them, and I don’t write enough real letters, anyway. Plus, it seems selfish to want to keep them all to myself. So maybe I’ll just frame a few.

Do you hoard your best stationery?

  1. I do hoard my stationery – partly because I don’t know anyone to write to, and partly because some of it is so nice that I don’t know if I’d ever be able to part with it!

  2. I do hoard and then I wonder why because I had sending in mind when I bought it.

    But – you don’t frame everything could you let us know if the paper is fountain pen friendly?

    • Alas, all my pens are in storage, but perhaps I’ll use the excuse to get a new one… or else I’ll wait till we’ve found a more permanent living situation. Anyway, I’ll keep you posted!
