Flow: book for paperlovers

I have an addiction. An addiction in paper. I love stationary. I love patterns. I adore graphic designs. And illustrations are my guilty pleasure. I love everything that’s crafted with and from paper. I love crafting with paper, painting with paper and decorating with paper. So I was looking forward to get the ‘Book for paper lovers’ by Flow Magazine, a Flow special to celebrate the 5 year anniversary of the magazine.  And finally, they just delivered it. Thank you Mr. Postman! The result of the ‘book’ is amazing. There’s only very little text, but lots and lots of paper goodies. A pop-up illustration, writing papers and envelopes, postcards, stickers, diorama, halyard and other paper craft projects.

I am so happy to see that Helen Dardik contributed in this Flow special. She’s one of my favorite illustrators. Her artwork is amazing. Her colorful illustrations really brighten my day. You can visit her website here and her Etsy webshop here.
