This event is part of a whole week of celebrations . Yes writing does matter, proper letters through the post are a treat. It is much more satisfying to cross things off a paper to-do list than to just delete a line of text on a tablet.
I have had rants about stationery before, so will endeavour to contain myself this morning. But two questions remain
- Why do the organisers of this event hold a wonderful exhibition at the London Business Centre - and then restrict it to trade only?
- Why is our local branch of Staples, that well known office supply chain, full of bins of pens/files/etc labelled "Stationary Sale" ? Surely they ought to be able to spell it correctly!
I finish with this very clever little advertisement which is entitled "Paper Has A Future"
