Postcard Airplane

Now you can send mail that can be immediately recycled into something fun.

…Excellent for kids and grown-ups who are just big kids, it’s made from balsa wood and the pieces easily pop out to form your very own loop-de-loop, flying glider. It’s much more fun than ordinary mail and once you write a little message on it, it becomes post with a bit more love and personality.

Carve your own postcard

When you’re far from your loved ones, it’s especially nice to receive something handwritten. It’s so old fashioned and lovely. Even more so, imagine getting a postcard which had a hand carved image on the back. Much better than an email any day.

Grid-It Notepad

I saw these a few months back and was disappointed when they weren’t available-but now they are! If you don’t “get” why grids are great, you’ll just have to trust me, they are.

“Each one is based on a famous grid system that changed the history of design. (Lots of background reading on grids at http://www.artofthegrid.com)
Choose from Le Corbusier’s Le Modulor (grid based on mathematics and the human body), Paul Rand’s A Designer’s Art (three column layout) or Jan Tschichold’s Die Neue Typographie (right-hand page layout). These are the front three pads, from left to right, in the main image. 60 sheets per pad printed in light blue ink.”

Portrait Landscape Book

This is such a smart idea- you can choose portrait or landscape (or anything in between) all in the same sketchbook.

“Each of the 210 pages is cut to a different size, starting with the standing portrait format (18,4 x 13,3 cm), which gradually mutates to the lying landscape format (13,3 x 18,4 cm).
The sketchbook was hand bound in the Netherlands in a signed and limited edition of 500 and each sketchbook is individually packaged in a very pretty box.”
