I used to walk past this shop in Tufnell Park (north London) all the time, but since moving back to my beloved Camden I had forgotten about it.
A trip up the tube led me past it again this weekend, and I had to stop and stare. It’s a teeny shopfront, in a slim grey giraffe of a building – but the amazing stationery of Harrington and Squires grabs your eye when you walk past and draws you in.

Below are a selection of their products. Apparently it is run by two typographers (imagine being able to say that was your job) and they run printing workshops…oooh next birthday present please any family members who are reading this and love me enough.
A lovely idea – a perforated calendar. How satisfying, finish work, come home and rip the day off. Job done.
NW1 forever, obviously.
