Paper Boat Studios is a collaboration between friends with a love of letterpress. They have studios in St Louis and Seattle and produce paper based delights such as books, calendars and games. I received their Chevron Coasters as a gift and they have been on my desk, fulfilling the role of executive toy.
Every now and then I take them out and just admire them.
Coasters are curious things aren’t they, I think they must come in the section with antimacassars and doillies. Slightly pointless, often ugly and when they’re beautiful (like these ones) they’re too good to use for what they’re intended.
No way is my spilling glass of g+t going on these pretties. I’m not sure if my photo can capture the tactile quality, which makes them perfect for taking out of their box and feeling. Their website has a list of stockists in the US.
