"Dots" stationery subscription box

Dots

Our very first subscription box theme back in January 2016 was “Circles, Dots & Spheres” so we decided to (partly) duplicate that for our fifty first collection. This really is a big brand box.

Gold is the traditional gift for a fiftieth anniversary, so what better theme could there possibly be for our fiftieth stationery subscription box?

"Escher" stationery subscription box

Escher

Our May 2019 stationery collection was inspired by Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898-1972), a Dutch graphic artist who made mathematically inspired woodcuts, lithographs, and mezzotints. A lot of his work, but by no means all of it, was in black and white and he is famous for his optical illusion designs. We reproduced one of his…
