selection of 5 address books | H is for Home

Hand-written address books are fast becoming an endangered species in the 21st century. They’re share the same (sinking) boat as writing paper, postcards, thank you notes, journals… The mobile phone, computer and other technology have a lot to answer for!

Don’t allow them to become extinct, fight back! Go get yourself one and transfer all your Outlook contacts to it – in your best handwriting and using a nice fountain pen!

As the front cover of address book #1 muses (or predicts, if you’re that way inclined!):

Quite sweet how we still write everything down, just in case aliens come and smash up all our computers or something.”

  1. Waldo Pancake address book: £7.50, John Lewis
  2. Personalised address book: £58, by Noble Macmillan on Notonthehighstreet
  3. Liberty iconic address book: £6.38, Hive
  4. Black & white floral birthday and address book: £7.99, WHSmith
  5. Creative Walls large address book: £9.64, Foyles

When I was at primary school, it was all the rage to collect & swap stationery; writing paper, stickers, pens, pencils. Even though I do a whole lot less writing these days, I rarely leave Paperchase without some beautiful handmade paper, notebook, pretty coloured ink pen or some-such. I guess I’ve never stopped being that little paper goods magpie of yore!
