covetable chronicle:
the art of instruction notebooks & postcards

I adore the Art of Instruction, this book features hundreds of vintage educational posters on a variety of topics, from anatomy to botany. Our friend's at Chronicle Books have also published a notebook collection and a postcard set. If you're also a fan of this stunning imagery, it's your lucky day - we're giving away both the notebook collection AND the postcard set this week - that's right, two lucky winners!

To enter the giveaway:
Head over to the Crow & Canary Facebook page and like or comment on the Chronicle giveaway post at the top of the page. Really, that's all. I will randomly choose two winners the afternoon of Tuesday, 2/26/13 and announce it on the C&C Facebook page.

Just a reminder: Comments on this blog will not be considered an entry. Good luck!

tradeshow spotting: the paper storage co.

Exhibiting at NYIGF last month was awesomely busy again, only downside to our popularity is that it left little time for perusing. Luckily I made the most of my time en route to the restroom or to grab a bite to eat and was able to see a few new lines that were entirely new to me. 

A Japanese exhibitor, Paper Storage Company, had a booth that made a distinct impression on me. I'm a complete sucker for cute and unique boxes, whether to use a storage or as gift wrap and these were beauties were calling my name. How lovely would the building boxes look sandwiched between books on a book shelf?

If you're looking for more NYIGF images, be sure to take a peek at my Instagram feed too!
