Edward Gorey stationery from Pomegranate

Edward Gorey stationery

I can't believe this is the first time I've managed to blog about my beloved Edward Gorey stationery from Pomegranate. This is great stuff, with part of a drawing sliced down the side of the page. There are 4 designs, and this is one of the sets that gives you more paper than envelopes, which I totally appreciate: 48 sheets, 25 envelopes. As you can see, the envelopes have their own lovely printing inside, though they are not gummed. The set comes with stickers to seal the envelope, but I usually add some more stickers just to make sure it stays sealed through all the postal machines and such.

Anyway, the paper is of an excellent weight and texture, takes fountain pen ink beautifully and never feathers or bleeds.

Even the box is lovely. I can never thrown them away when I've finished a set. (Oh yeah, and that's my red Esterbrook LJ next to it. Doesn't the color go nicely?)

They're currently on a half price sale at Pomegranate, but they've been like that for about a year now... my paranoid mind worries that perhaps they are going to be discontinued, so of course I've stocked up.

  4. I know what you mean about keeping the pretty boxes of the stationary. I have a drawer of boxes that once contained note cards that I simply could not throw away because they were too pretty and now holds odds and ends in them including one that has a print of a Vincent Vangogh painting all over it. :)

  7. The stickers are not terribly awesome. They're all of a single design, a round seal, with a dog hanging in a net in black and the words "Edward Gorey" in red.
