Recently discovered this inspiring range of journals and address books by NY based company Quotable, had finally made UK stores. The company started to produce greetings cards in 1993 when college grads Gillian Simon and Matt Fernandes-Vogel knew there were people out there, like themselves, who wanted smart simple cards, that just weren’t available at the time. They had an idea to quote great writers, artists, and thinkers and use their words as the foundation for the design, resulting in the original and incomparable typographical style of quotable.
I particularly like these Greeting cards – a perfect antidote to the schmaltzy Birthday Card:
They are made of 100% post consumer recycled paper that is fsc certified, carbon neutral, and acid and chlorine free using certified wind power and vegetable based inks. The fun bit is that on the back each quotable card contains a factoid with a bit of information related to the quote or author that is guaranteed to make you think, smile, or learn something new!
The Journals are a really solid brick of quality stationery. Each hard cover journal measures 8″ square with hard cover matte finish and 200 lined acid-free sewn pages. Perfect to sit on your desk as an inspiration journal.
