Dear Hancock.

I just got home last night from the National Stationery Show, where I was representing Minted and throwing  a few events for our designers. It was my second year going and just like last year, I loved every second of it! I have to say that ‘Dear Hancock‘ was my favorite new find. I’ll blog about some of my old favorites tomorrow.

They are a husband and wife team, but Gwendolyn refused to be photographed!

I was really amazed that they actually draw and paint collaboratively… they have two drawing boards on opposite ends of their dining room table and they just pass cards back and forth. I am OBSESSED with their desk series. How cute would it be to send a card that looks like the surface you are writing it from?

This one most closely resembles my desk.

This would be perfect for my sister-in-law Deirdre.

This one is perfect for my gardening Dad.

This one is perfect for my mother-in-law.

They also had a very cool print for expecting parents. I would love to customize the bookshelf print for someone special.

They said they were inspired to create this because so many of their friends are either trying to get pregnant or expecting. Since it’s hard to see, the titles read: Romanticism, Vol. 1; Survival Guide; L’art de la Conversation, Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot nothing is going to get better, it’s not –Dr. Seuss.; Poems for Parents; Great Expectations; Mind Reader. What a great gift for parents-to-be with a sense of humor!

  1. It’s like they came and drew my sewing desk!
    I like the idea of customizing book titles. Lots of potential for humor there!

  2. Thank you so much for posting about us! We love it. Sorry I was allusive and shadowy. I can be like that ;) Thanks again!

  3. I love this stationery! Thanks for sharing, N. I was thinking about you when I read that the National Stationery Show was going on… I might have to go someday just for fun!

  5. Aw, that’s sweet that you thought of me with that studio one! I love the idea of the two working together at the two ends of the table – adorable!
