So in my endless hunt for stationery splendor I attended the British Craft Trade Fair in the hope of home-grown talent. Amongst the expected chintz and myriad of cutesy bunting types I found some contemporary gems, although I was disappointed not to find a bookbinder using heritage skills in an innovative contemporary way…so if you know of any give me a heads up!

My pick of the show was:

Hand cut, glued and assembled pop up card from artist Rosanne Mary Ruth :

Bespoke textile designer Laura Slaters‘ cards and prints:
