Representative in everyday life. Stationery from Japan and South Korea
The high standard of Japanese stationery - from which our catalogs have benefited for many years - also has to do with the fact that the Japanese script made mechanization by typewriters difficult. Although the first models of typewriters were available at the beginning of the last century, they proved to be extremely difficult to use if one wanted to use not only the Japanese syllabic script but also the Chinese characters ("kanji") that are common in Japan. Until the introduction of the office computer, it was still customary to write business letters by hand, and for reasons of prestige, high-quality writing material was used.
The passion for handwriting has continued in Japan to this day, even if it is not for representative correspondence, but rather for everyday notes. And elsewhere in the East Asian region, too, a special affinity for selected stationery continues to be evident. These are often characterized by fine, smooth uncoated papers with discreet rulings - this is due to the still very widespread use of fine-lead pens, which have proven their worth in terms of the recognizability of complex characters.
For our office range, we have collected some such high-quality notebooks, notebooks and notepads as well as calendars from Japan and South Korea.
