We chose the theme “Ruby” for our April 2019 box as it marked our 40th box – where did the time go?
Castelli have launched several new designs quite recently, including the Harris range. The dark red version was the perfect fit for this box and it has a flexible cover, a first for Castelli. The cover has a beautifully tactile finish, the bespoke tweed suit of the notebook world!
We like to introduce our subscribers to brands they might not have seen before and in this collection we included two pencils from Austrian brand Cretacolour; a very stylish B grade graphite pencil and a dark red pastel pencil.
The pens this month were an InkJoy and Flair from Paper Mate and a twin-tipped metallic Zig Writer from Japanese brand Kuretake. I remember using Paper Mate Flair pens at school and it’s great to see they’re still so popular. Although it does make me feel old…
I don’t know what it is about string and washer envelopes, but they seem to be the perfect carrier for very special correspondence, given or received…
As usual the collection was completed with another set of four postcards featuring the work of some very talented young illustrators.
Once again this box sold out completely but some of our other previous subscriptions are available in our online shop, along with some other stationery collections.
We have more Harris notebooks for sale through our sister company, Stationery & Art, available in three colours; red, blue and brown, along with Castelli’s other beautiful designs.
