If you still prefer the pen/pencil writing method rather than the clickity clack of keyboard strokes, take a look at this beauty. The case is crafted from Bavarian cowhide and comes complete with a lovely assortment of writing tools (see below) that will no doubt add ceremony and purpose to your works. Also, if you already have your own tools, the case is available on its own without contents for £51. Could be a great gift for a writer friend or family member maybe. (Also, can I just say how many wonderful things Manufactum carries? I get lost on their site every time, adding loads of things to my shopping basket only to remind myself that I shouldn’t spend £300 on office supplies and miscellaneous brushes.)
