Sorry for the wee bit of an absence.....unfortunately the day job comes a calling.
But to get right back into gear, I wanted to tell you about the ever so cool Postalco.
Originally hailing from Brooklyn, Postalco is a now Japan-based, lifestyle accessories brand - bags, wallets, and of course their ever so cool papergoods.

Best known for the spiral bound notebooks, with flat cotton pressed covers, these notebooks are slowly becoming easier to find (At the Cooper-Hewitt and Auto shops in NY, as well Tortoise in Los Angeles), but are well worth the work of tracking them down.

One of their coolest, most recent projects, is their designs for Opening Ceremony, which is are based on Japanese Temple Geometry. This limited line is only available at Opening Ceremony stores and the Postalco shop in Japan, but are fortunately available online on OC's website.

Here's some of Postalco's great designs (leather and paper!):

And their work for Opening Ceremony:

I've been following the work that was going into Treatzone' s art show, Familiar Dreams.
What intrigued me was being able to see some work beyond the printmaking work they are known for.  And I must say, I'm really liking their photo light boxes, and wink wink, nudge nudge, I hope they'll add some of them to t
heir Etsy shop!
