Some years back, we really fell for the designs of Shinzi Katoh, who had a short-lived online store in the UK. Sadly that's gone, but the Japanese illustrator is still out there creating cool things – like these Paddington Bear Tea For Two Sets.
Shinzi Katoh's retro-styled illustrations are an ongoing favourite with this site. Fellow fans will be pleased to hear that Lazy Oaf are now stocking some Shinzi Katoh stationery including the notebooks pictured above.
The 'Friends' notebook on the left is a sturdy spiral bound number, while the 'Rain maker' notebook on the right comes with lovely illustrated pages and a sticker sheet. There are equally charming notebooks available in a 'Lion' or 'House' design. All the notebooks cost £5, apart from Friends which is £6.50.
