Show Review

Wow...what a day I had yesterday. I went to New York to attend the three shows going on simultaneously: The National Stationery Show, Surtex, and ICFF. Here are some of my faves from the shows. I'll continue to post more about some new finds in the weeks to come. One noteable highlight of the Stationery Show...I saw Martha Stewart working her way through the booths! Everyone stared, but pretended not to...including me.

THE STATIONERY SHOW

In the Relish booth, there were some of my favorite design folks! Good on Paper, Jill Bliss, and K. Autumn. Among them were the folks of Boon. They use high quality pulp-free abaca papers from the Philippines to create super colorful and gorgeous notepads, file folders, and portfolios...up close, they are super gorgeous and detailed...(see Design*Sponge for great photos of their work.)
