I have to say, peeping new calendars at the Stationery Show always gives me a thrill and this is one the posts I look forward to sharing the most. An abundance of great new designs for 2012. Most of these have not gone into production yet, but you will see them popping up in your favorite shops and online towards August and September.

An array of talented illustrators at the National Stationery Show, as always. I love seeing original work from the minds of creatives. I was particularly pleased to spot Foxtail Press again, this line was a favorite debut from the 2010 show.
