In an age when virtual stationery à la Google Sheets reigns supreme, the pencil to paper days of yore seem rare and inefficient. But there’s something prodigious about a nicely designed memo pad or an extra-inky highlighter. The joy we get from cracking the spine on a new planner or sharpening a personalized pencil set is unbeatable and yet to be matched by the algorithms permeating our lives.
