Done – all my thank you notes are written and posted! I may be tech-addicted but I still like to put pen to paper. Lately I’ve been using Kate Spade’s initial note cards and my psychedelic Peter Max ‘fold and mail’ notepaper, but I’d love to get my hands on the just-launched Louis Vuitton ‘World Of Writing’ papers and inks.
Newly opened at 6 Place Saint-Germain-des-Prés in Paris is Vuitton’s Cabinet d’Ecriture, a one year pop-up designed to celebrate the art of correspondence. Selling the ultimate in luxe writing instruments, crystal inkwells and stationery cases alongside its paper and ink collections, the World of Writing is an homage to 17th and 18th century cabinets of curiosities as well as 19th-century libraries. How fabulous does that sound? In-store demos from bookbinders, typographers and papermakers are also promised, making this a real destination for both stationery lovers and appreciators of traditional crafts.
