If you're a fan of textile designer John Robshaw's block-printed beauties, then you'll want in on his latest medium: paper. His new stationery, journal, and notebook collections for Chronicle Books are well suited for the wanderlust-bitten with a soft spot for snail mail, travel diaries, and pretty notebooks.
When we received the Creature Notecards ($15), we fought the urge to set up a desk-side menagerie, just for viewing's sake. These beautifully illustrated animal cards are the type that will end up on your friend's inspiration board instead of the recycling bin. Still, if a more traditional stationery set is what you're looking for, then take a look at this Stationery Collection ($15), which includes vibrantly patterned flat sheets, envelopes, and even labels.
For those embarking on a journey, we recommend this Ramble & Rove travel journal ($20) for filling in the gaps that photos can't capture. We're loving the thought-provoking page prompts that help guide the writing process (a bonus for journal newbies!). Plus, tools like measuring and currency conversion charts provide plenty of practicality.
The Verdant Garden Eco-Journal ($11) offers a straightforward and sustainable notebook option. It's printed with soy-based inks on 100 percent recycled paper and features some of our favorite designs from John Robshaw's fabric selections.
