GREAT ALBUMS BY SLOANE STATIONERY

Posted on by Felicia da Costa

Call me old fashioned, but nothing beats an actual photo album with actual, printed photographs, now does it? Even as a kid, I loved the ugly blue one my mom made for me, with the slightly faded pictures and comments (yes, handwritten), lovingly glued and taped to the thick leaves. Now I know it’s 2015 and I know there are all sorts of programs on my computer and even companies to make these albums for me, but I felt I owed it to my kids to try and make them an old school album.


A long quest for a nice album made me realize there is no such thing: every book I came across was either ugly, way too colorful or very childish. That is, until I ‘bumped’ into Sloane Stationery: a wonderful brand based in London. Although very expensive, I thought I might give it a try and ordered two albums and two little notebooks to write down funny quotes and actions by both George and Alba. Thanks to my post pregnancy dementia I had totally forgotten about my order until I received a huge box with four wonderfully packaged gifts… Alba was not interested one bit, but I am sure she will thank me later. Go check it out!
