New York’s annual fair remains the premier spot to shop for stationery, with buyers travelling from all over the world. And the US market is a hotbed for talent. Artists and designers have revived old-fashioned printing techniques, often starting one-man cottage industries in their homes. Aside from the excellence of letterpress designs, hand screen-printed and block-printed designs were also in abundance – echoing the continuing appetite for and value placed on handcrafted product. Stylus highlights the directions seen at the fair and our pick of the exhibitors.
