Parallel Lines is the theme of the latest Spotlight Stationery subscription box.
It makes me want to sing Blurred Lines, even though the words are completely different, but anyway, I digress.
(And apologies if I’ve just given you an ear worm for the rest of the day!)
The gorgeous A5 notebook from French stationer Atelier 225 feels absolutely beautiful to the touch.
It features a screen printed chevron patterned cover and 120 sheets of removable plain paper.
At 100gsm, it will be perfect for calligraphy practice.
I might even use it to write the #InCoWriMo replies that have been stacking up on my desk!
I’ve got some new pens and pencils to do that with too, thanks to the addition of the Stabilo Point 88, Pointmax and Pointvisco pens and Pencil 160.
Many of the German pen manufacturer’s products feature white stripes.
There’s also a bookmark from Museums and Galleries with a bold striped design by Cressida Bell, a British designer specialising in textiles and interiors.
Spotlight Stationery has also included the latest in its own series of pocket notebooks, which I always like to have at hand – perfect for summer holiday bucket lists!
The design features stripes in shades of my favourite colour too – green.
As always, there’s a set of postcards featuring the work of talented young illustrators.
This is one of my favourite aspects of the subscription box, giving up-and-coming illustrators the chance to showcase their talents.
My daughter loves Katie Turner’s woodland animal and I like Victoria Ball’s street scenes.
Every month, Spotlight Stationery curates a selection of contemporary stationery, based on a theme, for its subscribers, choosing only premium brands and artisan products.
Every purchase also includes a donation to Gloucestershire Young Carers.
