Paper is going nowhere
Paper of all kinds – painted, illustrated or printed, to glue, post or sketch on – is as popular as ever in Lyon.
1- XL notebook
More hefty than the standard notebook, but just as beautiful, here is ‘Le Book’ by Papier Merveille.
This huge, 576-page notebook, with dot grids, is ideal to start a recipe book, a collection of memories or poems, a long diary, or any kind of writing with a unique personality.
From € 36
2- Rock, paper, sisters
For both born-and-bred locals and newcomers to the city, a graphic poster designed by Amélie and Clémence, two siblings from Lyon who recently joined the world of stationery under the pseudonym ‘We are Lapin’.
3- Sweet nothings
Located in the Beaujolais, the photographer and graphic artist Caroline Briel, A.K.A. ‘Cinq Mai’, creates poetic miniature scenes, to be collected like little treasures, each season.
4- Born to be wild
Creator, publisher and maker of wallpaper and textiles, Le Presse Papier is celebrating its tenth anniversary with a special birthday Toile de Jouy, named ‘Anima’, featuring lush vegetation and exotic animals. We love the figure of the Lion, which is inspired by the sculpture Le lion au serpent (Lion with a Snake), by Antoine Louis Barye, exhibited at Lyon’s Museum of Fine Arts.
