Our best discovery at the Book Expo two months ago (it seems like it was a year ago) was actually a rediscovery. I fell in love at first sight with the Brookfield line of letterpress notecards from Orange Arts.
And I was not alone. Every Boswellian I showed it to felt the same, well, if they had any interest in stationery at all. (Many don't. You're shocked). I started with the basic notecards in 5 designs, plus little desk notes in two designs.
I went to create the order, and what do you know, at some time in the past, Schwartz had ordered from them, though there was nothing in the database from the past few years.
Here's a link to their site, where you can ooh and ahh over the designs. We're carrying red diamond and blue daisy in both styles, plus orange compass, spring, and terra in the notecards.
I also like stepping stones, friends, and solaris. Oh, and lichen. And lilac spray.
It's a toy! It's a puzzle! It's a playset!
