If, like us, you think nothing beats the back-to-school feeling of a new notepad, neatly aligned pens, and a good rummage in the office stationery cupboard, then we've found the book for you.

Packed with pictures we can only described as 'stationery porn', I Love Stationeryproves that even though we're in a digital age, the industry is flourishing, with illustrators and designers creating gift wrap, cards, notebooks and more as art forms.

The inspirational pictures are teamed with interviews with each designer, and practical tips and tutorials for budding stationers. Feeling inspired to craft your own bespoke thank-you notes? Take a look at our favourite stationery designs from the book below - and we guarantee you'll be tempted to invest in fancy paper and a fountain pen.
