Flow: Book for Paper Lovers

More than 300 pages of paper goodies - it's a thick book! Inside you'll find postcards, DIY envelopes, address labels, coloring pages, stickers, even a pop-up and a garland, gift tags, wrapping paper and much more. Irene Smit and Astrid van der Hulst, the creative directors of Flow Magazine, thought it would be fun to create a whole magazine without any text to celebrate the magazine's 5th birthday. And they are right: It's a lot of fun inside! I felt almost overwhelmed when I wrapped it out and had a first look. All patterns, tags and labels are printed on perforated paper for easy removal. Did I mention that it's really thick? Illustrators from around the world contribute to this book, among them Deborah van der Schaaf, Leonie Bos, Helen Dardik and Caroline Ellerbeck. Watch out for the German Flow as well. More about Flow here and here. I wrote about the international issue before. Get your copy here!
