5 of Our Favourite Fold Articles

A handful of reading gifts to celebrate 5 years of Papier.

As we celebrate 5 years of Papier, we take a look at a few of our favourite Fold articles. 5 to be precise. Seemed like a good number. Let this not be thought of as a definitive top of the pops of the Fold so far, rather just a handful of articles that we thought would be good to bring to people’s attention again.

5 Types of Stationery Addicts

Lil Wayne the Dog
We’ve been fortunate enough to visit the homes and studios of many inspirational designers and creatives but perhaps none have left quite the same impression as this stationery loving sausage dog. (Warning: contains exceptionally cute video footage.)

Dancing on My Own: The Self-Isolation Disco
When lockdown happened, Papier copywriter and dancing queen Jennie Watson was home alone with no disco to go to and no one to disco with. But did that stop her? No it did not and if there’s another lockdown, or you just happen to be boogieing solo in your sitting room, Jennie’s got the perfect moves for you to pull in small living spaces.

The Mouse’s Song: A Poem
This is a Christmas story, a rodent retelling of The Night Before Christmas, so maybe a bit out of season to be sharing in summer but hey, we just love Christmas so much and writer Ella Risbridger’s words even more, we couldn't resist.
