Writers love stationery, and I’m no exception. The first career I ever dreamed of was selling notebooks. Instead I buy them. Where better to start than with Oxford’s finest
I met Lucie Forejtova, aka Immaginacija at an Oxford arts meeting, and fell instantly in love with her high quality stationery. She sells it at our live shows, and now has a workshop in the Albion Beatnik Bookstore. You can watch her making the books and then buy (at daftly affordable prices)
The best thing is that her bindings are not only exquiaite but designed with the user in mind – all her books open flat.
Pens Plus on the High Street is the equivalent for fountain pens, with the very finest makes as well as some wonderful obscurities
