“We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.” Anaïs Nin
And for a place to save your thoughts, new to Momo are ‘Scandinasian’ journals from PIE Stationery of Japan.
The focus is on modern design based on Japanese tradition. Graphic illustrator Yurio Seki’s playful journals interpret Swedish style through a Japanese lens while Sou Sou’s iconic random pattern is the Kyoto kimono company’s take on western culture. Both reflect a dedication to quality, with saddle-stitched bindings, textured covers and thick cream-colored pages.

Pair your East-Meets-West journal with a wonderful, whimsical floaty pen! Floating Action Pens have been around since the late 1940’s – made then as now by the same small company in Sweden (the number of employees is “about twenty”). Our floaty pens feature a solemn bunny being conjured out of its hat ... sure to bring a smile to your lips as you pen your musings.

If you don’t find much occasion to put pen to paper, a journal/pen combo would make a sweet and thoughtful gift for the contemplative writer in your life.
