The Well-Appointed Desk’s Ana Reinert Shares What’s on Her Wishlist

5 Nov

European-Paper-wishlist-from-Ana-Reinert-Well-Appointed-Desk

For the most part, stationery and office supplies are not super expensive
and perfect for gift-giving. Unfortunately, non-paper geeks have no idea
what do buy for the paper-and-pen geek.

Here are a few things I think would love to find under the tree this
Christmas:

1. I love high-quality fountain pen inks. Both J. Herbin and Noodler’s make
great inks and have lots of colors to choose from. I particularly like the
icy aqua blue Noodler’s Navajo Turquoise Ink ($12.50)»

2. The amusing Cavallini Oops Eraser ($3.50) would make a perfect stocking
stuffer.

3. I’ve been on the lookout for a great dry highlighters and the Moleskine
Highlighter Pencil Set ($16.50) with its matte black casing and cool
carpenter-style shape make this an appealing option.

4. I’m always looking for good-quality stationery and the G. Lalo Medium
Tablet & EP Set ($23) in mint green looks like the luxury option. Wrapped
with a red bow, it’s holiday-ready. And those lazy post-Christmas days are a
great time to catch up on all my correspondence.

5. So many wonderful things have been said about the Apica Premium A6 CD
Notebook ($14.70) but I’ve yet to buy a pad. I think the plain paper pad
with the black cover would be a great way to try it out.

6. Anything by Midori is a welcome gift. Their products are high quality and
have great classic looks. The Midori B7 Spiralbound Envelope Notebook
($8.35) would be a great catch-all for receipts, stamps or travel ephemera.

7. Finally, in preparation for 2014, I will definitely need a new calendar for
my desk. The Cavallini Around The World Desk Calendar ($12.95) is just the
right sort of retro cool for me to dream of my next vacation while sitting
in the office.

Maybe I need to fill my own stocking this year?

When I think of timeless elegance, the first thing that always comes to mind is Cavallini. Excellent quality, sturdy, timeless and classic.  You’ll never forget Cavallini after you see the decorative calendars, stationery, and other paper products adorned with detailed images of vintage prints, maps, and iconic places from around the world. Each is striking and unique. When I want to write a letter to a dear friend, something out of the ordinary, I immediately pick up a Cavallini product.

While Cavallini is known for their gorgeous paper and notecards, they pride themselves on their wide selection of stunning calendars.  Each calendar is a unique collection of striking art prints.  As you flip through each month, you immediately get transported to old-world New York, Paris, and everywhere in between.  You can get sucked into their Garden prints; you can even go Around the World.

I remember a few years back to when I was gifted a Cavallini desk calendar from a friend.  The thickness of the paper between my fingers, the crisp colours and texture, would transport me every month to a different place.  As an added bonus, the prints were so beautiful, it looked like I had hung up professional art prints in my office!  After the year was done, I carefully cut the prints out and saved them. I still have them, tucked away in my art space.

After that gift, I began to seek out Cavallini products – the rounded paperclips that perfectly and elegantly hold your papers, plus many other calendars – they reminded me of times gone by, of old suitcases covered in travel stickers. Recently I gave a friend who loves to travel the Amalfi coast calendar. She was ecstatic, and told me she didn’t want to use it because it was so beautiful!

It is a reminder of the past the way it should be seen – worn and captured perfectly.

Art History Lesson Part 2: Cavallini Botanica Calendars

4 Sep

Cavallini & Co., known for their high quality and exquisite craftsmanship, celebrates the work of renowned artists in their beautiful calendars. Two popular calendar designs feature inspired global artwork. These two calendars hail from very different points in history, but both honor a rich artistic tradition. The first I posted about was Cavallini’s most popular calendar prints: Japanese Woodblocks. The second, today’s post, is Cavallini’s Botanica print calendars.

Cavallini Botanica’s Beginning

Cavallini 2013 Wall Calendar - Botanica on EuropeanPaper.comBorn in 1746, William Curtis began his career in England as an apothecary. Soon he branched off into natural history, and he developed a specific interest in botany. In 1779 he established his own botanic garden.

In 1787, Curtis founded The Botanical Magazine. The publication featured hand-colored plates of floral prints and journal articles about gardening and botany. Later, the publication was renamed Curtis’s Botanical Magazine.

Botanical illustrators provided finely detailed plates, and descriptions accompanied each rendering in the publication. This highly regarded publication was one of the first to introduce such illustrations to the general public.

Curtis only lived to see the first 13 volumes. However, Curtis’s Botanical Magazine is still published today by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. According to the publisher, “Now well over two hundred years old, the Magazine is the longest running botanical periodical featuring colour illustrations of plants. Each four-part volume contains 24 plant portraits reproduced from watercolour originals by leading international botanical artists. Detailed but accessible articles combine horticultural and botanical information, history, conservation and economic uses of the plants described.”

The first 164 volumes of the publication are collected and housed at the National Agricultural Library in Beltsville, Maryland. In addition, several of the publication’s earliest issues are available online through The Gutenberg Project.

The beautifully illustrated floral prints in the Cavallini calendar first appeared in Curtis’s Botanical Magazine in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. See them all in Cavallini’s Botanica Wall and Easel Calendars.
