Well, this week marked our first anniversary as Tracks of foxes, we have really enjoyed sharing our thoughts, finds & attempts and making and doing over this last year and we hope you have enjoyed reading them. Next week we will be reposting some our our favourite and most loved posts. Tradition would have it, that the gift for a first year anniversary is paper. Much as we are super grateful for technology there is nothing so lovely as pen, pencils, paper and print, so this little finds is a round up of some of our favourite paper related finds:
1. Paper to read: Kinfolk
My all time favourite magazine is the beautiful kinfolk magazine, i discovered it a year ago, through some beautiful ‘go to’ blogs I read by some lovely peeps in Portland and Nashville. It is a celebration of small gatherings, comes out seasonally, documenting, traditions and rhythms, simple food, and places to visit. It is indeed a thing of beauty, the prose reads like poetry and the photography has a little bit of magic that awakes emotion. Pop along to watch their delightful videos, and get yourself a copy. For is UK based fans, you can get a copy on amazon.
2. Paper to scibble and doodle on: Field Notes
There is nothing quite like the scratching of a pencil or pen onto some paper. Although moleskin create beautiful notebooks, I recently discovered and quickly bought a selection of these beautiful Field notes – the come in Kraft card or in a variety of seasonal colours ( I am really fond of the crop edition) and are little enough to fit into a back pocket – you can get them lined squared or black.
3. Something to scribble with: Blackwing pencils
We love these beautiful blackwing pencils, whose led rarely seems to break but who have a warm dark line, and are super comfy to hold. You can get them at the rather lovely Pedlars.
4. Beautiful printed products: Rifle paper company
For all you romantics preparing for valentines day, or any other clecbration that calls for some special paperware, you must pop over to the rifle paper company and coo and the gorgeous paperware and illustrations by the brilliant Anna Bond. I am especially fond of this little card for any one you think is super special.
Have a tip top weekend, whatever you are upto,
