We have two new notebook designs in from Serrote in Portugal. They have lovely letterpress covers made from bits of old wood and lead type, and the interior pages are always playful. We received Quadriculado, with a medium-blue grid paper inside, and Toalha de Mesa, which uses that slightly quilted white paper tablecloth/napkin inside - a very clever comment on folks who doodle their ideas at the dinner table. These notebooks are printed in runs of 1500 and 2000, respectively, and are numbered on the back. They are great for paper fanatics, like me...

Bags and Books

New bags by Hayden-Harnett and new is a photo of my fave new bag, the Hudson Satchel in Smoke Blue, it is a dandy. And a layout from "The Great Escape" which has very cutting-edge illustration and photography from around the world.

Today we are listening to very sweet pop by Say Hi to Your Mom and the Bird and the Bee. Those are two band names by the way...also I want to say thank you to my brother for the iPod shuffle Xmas present. It is completely loaded up with indie music from the eighties and nineties, cuz that's how old I am.

A few shots of new things at the shop (Property Of men's or unisex bags, Mollie's bracelets and Katie's cards). We also have a cute Valentine's card by Good on Paper, new card designs by Herman Yu, lots of excellent design books, and more. The Hanna Werning posters are back in stock also!

Today I read the piece in the Times about retail blogs - people seem to pooh-pooh them a bit. Is it annoying that I write about things in the store on my own blog? I hope not. Work is work and I have other blogs for Real Life (what little I have of that). OK, sometimes I make you read about my dog...
