This is tough for me and I presume I can extend this beyond the purely analogue world. My three objects would probably be a pocket notebook, a fountain pen and my iPhone. I think without these items I would be pretty lost.
Wooden pencil definitely.
Fountain pen no question.
Sketchbook. I think the sketchbook is more versatile and gives me more possibilities. With a screen I would be more worried about the way I was doing something and frustrated that it wasn’t doing exactly what I needed it to. With a sketchbook these unimportant elements go away.
I think this would have to be Asia. It seems that stationery is really integrated into everyday life and the products they have on offer look amazing. I would love to visit somewhere like Japan but I would need a big budget and a lot of time. There are a few stationery items from Asia I have enjoyed using but there are a lot of things on my wish list that come from that region.
Not really. The only thing I have adopted in the past 6 months is adding a contents page to my pocket notebook and numbering its pages. I just find this useful if I ever need to look back in an old notebooks - its much easier to scan a contents page rather than flick through the entire notebook. I used to be interested in productivity hacks but now I find them rather distracting. I think you could spend more time finding out about these things, and becoming unproductive, rather than just tackling what you need to head on.
I don’t own a traditional pencil case of sorts however the items that come with me at the moment are a Nock Co Lookout which includes the Karas Kustoms Ink, the TWSBI 580 RB and a Pilot Coleto. Alongside this I use a Mitsubishi Hi Uni H pencil, a Caran d’Ache mechanical pencil, a Palomino long point sharpener and a Magic Koh-I-Noor eraser. And then I have a Field Notes memo book and my Hobonichi Techo. When I’m on the move that gets thrown in a Hershel Supply Company pouch.
