Pencils, bookmarks and matchboxes
Here at the bindery, we have the privilege of working with some of the world's most beautiful papers every day. The custom pencils, bookmarks and matchboxes you see on this page, diminutive though they may be, are pure fun for us to make, and give us a chance to use the smaller bits of paper left over from our larger projects.
We're taking our cue here from the venerable English decorator, Roger Banks-Pye, who thought nothing of lavishing his considerable creative attention on the tiniest everyday objects. And why not?! The most utilitarian objects, when made special, are a treat, and can add a bit of pleasure and awareness to our daily routines. So enjoy!
