This store is an absolute dream! All those beautiful racks of paper...
Oh, I would just walk around running my grubby mitts all over everything. I would love to take a bookbinding class!
This is my dream store..there are some many books I would love to re-bind..sigh
this store looks like heaven! enjoy your weekend!
how much would I love to rummage around their paper collection! Lovely pictures.
Yay, I love Shepherd's! Every time I go I spend way too much money. They also sell loads more beautiful paper at their other branch (Falkiner's) in Holborn. I was lucky enough to tour their bindery, and they've got some beautiful beautiful stuff! So glad you like as well :).
Yes, the bird paper is lovely. They are probably cranes. The Japanese have a love affair with cranes. You should look it up if you don't already know it. I think it goes something like "to compose your mind for life, you should use origami to make as many cranes as you can in one lifetime. You can give them to someone you love." Very romantic and delightful, just like the paper. Blessings, Star
Hi there! Just hopping around blogland and found your lovely blog. Thought I'd say hi!
wow what an amazing place!
Oh my word, I'd love to get lost in there, it looks amazing!!
This shop looks like one I would be blissfully lost in for hours, what a selection! Wish we were closer to London. Love the Japanese prints you highlighted- each one is exquisite!
