If you don't lust after this, you're probably dead.
I really love finding new stationery ranges and Twitter has been an invaluable resource in my eternal quest for stationery nirvana. And this could be it. I've already mentioned my love of quadrille and this paper from Doane combines grid + lines ONTO THE SAME SHEET! I can't really give this a proper review, given that it's not yet available in the UK and the shipping costs from the US are proving prohibitive. However, a little bird (I mean Twitter again) told me Doane Paper is already on the radar of @thepaperie, a Cheshire-based stockist, and that if we lobby hard enough, they might consider importing the range. Talk to them here http://www.thepaperie.co.uk/customer-care/contact-us if you're interested.
Im really hoping they do because I am dying to get my hands on this: the Daily Arsenal Kit.
In their own words, the Daily Arsenal Kit includes every single stationery product of the Doane Paper grid + lines movement. From the rugged Idea Journal to the industrious Writing Pad you'll be covered for whatever awaits you. The kit gives you a 20% discount over buying the goods individually, plus if you live in the U.S.A. you'll also receive free shipping.
