I got one slightly beat-up box from Korea today. O-check delivers again with great paper goods and little accessories that just are perfect for the store. Let's see, we have more skinny weekly calendars that you can't seem to get enough of, and little blue bird notebooks. I got new notebook designs in 3 sizes for journal addicts, plus a monthly scheduler tablet, more of the petite yearly planners, more of the fabric-covered buttons that everyone loves, passport document jackets (the long skinny sort) and a stapler. Why did I get staplers shipped from Korea? Well, you will just have to come look at them and decide for yourself.
What else - a beautiful book of vintage swissair posters by George Gerster, all amazing aerial photography from a time when you couldn't just go to Google Maps and hunt down a picture. The Mark Ryden book is here. More J Fold wallets for the gentlemen (and enlightened ladies). And a new card line, Little Oranges of California, letterpressed, cheery and slightly retro.
And - the new magazine A Public Space is having a launch party at the Aurora Gallery on W. 29th St in Manhattan. Unfortunately it's the same night as the Lena Corwin reception! Ah well, but they do promise "drinks music secret djs projections mirth" so perhaps someone can report back for me.
Current weird obsession: "hunan dumplings" that are vegan and in the take-out case at the health food stores in the area. They are oddly good. Obviously I need to hunt down some real Chinese food.
