i love stationery. sometimes, if i don't control myself i can really end up spending loads of money on it. south korea is the obvious winner as for the design and availability of nice stationery. some of my favourite korean brands include: o-check, mmmg and ssba. i also appreciate hand made stationery made by small companies such as lovelydesign. for last christmas as a gift for myself i bought the above journey book. it is really precious and i'm planning to use it as a travel diary. i wish i could own a stationery shop or company!

Congratulations, this is such a nice blog. Beautiful, inspiring, brilliant. And so are the pictures posted in it.

I am a Spanish girl interested in literature, writing, photography and any kind of art that lights up my dull ordinary life devoted to banking.

Thanks for your blog.
