📝 On Stationery

Pens and notebooks are the tools of my trade. Finding stationery with the exact qualities I covet can be difficult.

Some thoughts:

  • The best type of pen is the pen that makes you want to write.
  • I like grid paper. Blank paper is too intimidating. Lined paper is too restrictive.
  • The crinkle of used Tomoe River Paper is one of the best sensations in the world.
  • I want to like fountain pens, but I find them too fussy.
  • There are too many great notebooks and not enough time or use cases for them.
