Remain Stationery

10/22/2008

Smythson of Bond Street– stationers to the British crown as far back as Queen Victoria – have their online store up and running. I for one, still like a handwritten thank you note and a pocket planner as a backup to my iPhone. I also love seemingly useless bits of information and 24-carat gilt edging. Given that combo, I don’t think I can resist the Schott’s Miscellany Diary, it has all of the above.  Written and designed by the author Ben Schott in association with Smythson, the diary features quirky snippets of miscellany, pages of pertinent information, quotations on all manner of subjects, words of the week, and pencil games to while away the daily commute.  Stocking stuffer perhaps?
