Paperworld in Frankfurt, highlighting the top three trends to emerge from the stationery tradeshow:
1. Stitch detail: Handmade notebook covers embellished with threads, small pieces of fabric and other sewing accessories.
2. Ribbons: Simple cardboard storage boxes and stationery collections get a very feminine touch just by adding a ribbon.
3. Retro: Vintage drawings and fifties culture were a massive inspiration for prints in the collections presented at Paperworld 2011, especially for greeting cards.
