In the era of email, text messages and cell phones, there are few things that are as meaningful as a hand-written letter. If you are one of the few people out there who refuses to give up on snail mail, you're also probably one of those people with a penchant for cool stationery.
IShould you fall into this aforementioned category, you must visit R. Nichols Stationery
to check out the newest selection of distinctive paper. Nichols is a well-known illustrator who provided the leggy, glamorous drawings for the recent best-seller, French Women Don't Get Fat.
Nichols' hand-drawn cards and stationery are divided according to theme: babies, gardens, travel, New York, Paris, fashion, beauty. My favorite has to be the "Taxi in the Rain"
card. For obvious reasons, this quirky card captures the romance and the drudgery of life in the Big Apple. A box of eight folded note cards with envelopes costs $14.
