Quo Vadis Planners with Soho Covers

When it comes to keeping track of your schedule in a paper weekly appointment book one size definitely does not fit all. Some of you want a planner that fits in your pocket or purse, while others want a large work-horse capable of keeping track of a very detailed schedule. Quo Vadis comes to the rescue with a full line of planners with a classic week on 2 pages scheduling format. The size and features, such the amount of room for notes, vary from planner to planner. Typically, the larger planners have more features than the smaller planners but they all have the same basic page format.

Generally, these weekly appointment books include:

  • Boxes on the right side of the right page to jot down information such as phone numbers, email addresses, expenses and other notes.
  • Weekdays usually have a schedule from 8am to 9pm in half hour increments.
  • Weekdays each have a box at the top of the day to list priorities
  • Sunday is the least prominent day of the schedule.
  • Monthly calendar(s) in the top right corner of the right page
  • A notation to tell you which week of the year & day of the year it is
  • Section for addresses
  • A yearly calendar
  • Most can be purchased with a refillable cover or as just a refill
  • Acid-free, pH neutral paper
  • Planners with 90g paper are fountain pen friendly
  • Sewn binding

Vintage Pens Discovery!

Vintage Pens

Vintage Pens

While travelling this summer, I came across a stash of vintage pens that my grandparents used to write with. Mostly ballpoint pens, a five mechanical pencils and a three non-functioning fountain pens. Some of the more interesting items are: Eclipse Hooded Knight Pencil, Waterman Skywriter Pencil, International Harvester Company of Canada Parker Pencil, WA Sheaffer Fineliner ballpoint, “The Parker Mystery Shopper” ballpoint pen, Eversharp red plastic ballpoint pen and an Airway Motel Great Falls pen (still exists, but doesn’t exactly look five-star). The fountain pens include an Eclipse Hooded Knight and a couple of Waterman’s, one of which says “Made in Canada.”

Any ideas from you pen geeks or artists out there as to what to do with these nostalgic writing instruments? Could they be re-purposed into some kind of funky art sculpture? Made into an attractive display? Put into a shadow-box frame? Sold to fund my first multi-million dollar mansion (Ha! I wish)? Please feel free to share your creative ideas!
