The best ‘back to school’ stationery (whether you’re going back to school or not)

The best ‘back to school’ stationery (whether you’re going back to school or not)

Ahh, stationery.

The order; the structure; the systemisation of pencils, pens, notepads, and various other pieces of paraphernalia.

It’s no wonder the Western world has collectively gone a bit loo-la for stationery; the appeal of putting some method to the madness of life in the form of harmonious workspace layouts and whimsical colour schemes is undeniably a welcome change to our turbulent world.

Plus, who doesn’t love a good notepad?

So, whether you’re going back to school this September or your young ones are heading back to the grind (or maybe you just like stationery, dammit), we’ve picked out some lovely little bits to help make every one of your desk-bound endeavours as visually appealing as possible.
