Schooled in Stationery
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
As stationery enthusiasts, we are entranced with the offerings from Present & Correct's finely edited and personality-filled online store. The UK company was started by Neal Whittington and Mark Smith, who are two graphic designers (a fact that is immediately apparent from the website). Present & Correct stocks sundry stationery items that are strangely familiar, and yet not. Whittington and Smith travel around Europe and further afield four times a year to refresh and add to their growing collection of "paper and office objects which are inspired by homework, the post office, and school." They "hope to spark a distant memory, make you smile, or look at the most mundane in a new, and fonder, light." Above: Everything about this German Krups Clock , from the color to the graphics, brings back the 1970s with a vengeance; £95. Above: A Japanese hand-crafted Wood Divider Tray is useful for keeping desks tidy; £25. Above: Colorful Vintage Money Bags can be used for various niggling organizational needs: Sort your stamps, dry-cleaner stubs, and receipts; £7.50 for five bags. Above: The German Bike Light Chart is reminiscent of the days when diagrams were simpler; £95. Above: Present & Correct's Strips of Clips shows the principals' eyes for small details; £15.
