Here are three items that caught my eye this weekend:
1. The Independent’s 50 best stationery items. I learned about some interesting UK businesses such as drafting supply manufacturer Blundell Harling and online store Pencils 4 Artists.
I saw the story via papernation’s tweet. Papernation itself looks like a very interesting store.
2. Death of a Brand – BOSTON Pencil Sharpener Company at Scription. An interesting discussion and some amazing photos of these old workhorses.
3. Lamy Design – From the Hammock at Dave’s Mechanical Pencils. This look at a Lamy catalogue caught my eye because I think I have that “white pen”. I had no idea that it was so noteworthy.

Not good news about Boston. I’ve got two of their dark blue electric sharpeners, one for work and one for home. I’ve also got a battery operated Boston, as well as an older “suction” mount hand crank from the 1980’s.
