Lonely Planet review

A magnet for slavering stationery fetishists (you know who you are), this treasure trove of writing-related ephemera ranges from natty pens to quirky, hand-crafted greeting cards. In between, you'll find an intriguing undercurrent of kitsch-cool Japanese journals and reams of sumptuous washi paper. It's a store that makes you long for the return of traditional letter writing.

There's also a back wall of seals and sealing wax if you happen to be corresponding with someone from the middle-ages.
