I Heart Stationery - Book Giveaway

The giveaway has ended. Scroll down to see who won!

If you're the type of person who enjoys perusing photos of beautiful paper goods while learning about the artistic techniques of designers around the world, I can pretty much guarantee the brand new book, I ♥ Stationery, will be right up your creative alley.


Block printing, letterpress, calligraphy, paper cutting, hand and digital illustration, and screen printing are introduced by author Charlotte Rivers in the compact, hardback book.

Terms and tools of each technique or process accompany inspiring examples of contemporary invitations, cards, notepaper, wrapping paper, calendars, journals, notebooks, and gift tags.

Despite our living in the midst of the digital age - or perhaps because of it - more and more attention is being paid to unique stationery items that make it possible to communicate with a personal touch.

Many thanks to all who took the time to enter. It's great to see so much enthusiasm for stationery - definite proof that communication isn't entirely digital at this point!

Oh this looks lovely! I could use a bit of new inspiration.

Azizah said...

I think recycled gift wrap paper is a great idea. It seems silly to make new paper to wrap things when it just gets thrown away, doesn't it? Reduce, reuse, recycle! Thanks for the chance!

Yuenie said...

The pictures are lovely! The butterflies especially caught my eye =) got my fingers crossed!

I am a stationery junkie! I bought a stack of gorgeous paper at a paper store in Cambridge, MA back when I was in college and I still have most of it (so, I guess I'm a stationery hoarder, too). I love that letterpress and other handmade stationery products are experiencing a revival. More to love! This looks like a book I'd love just for the pleasure of looking at all of the stationery goodness! Thanks for the chance to win it!
