  1. A friend wrote to comment on these, and I wrote the following in response, which I figured I’d share here: This photo was shot in a little stationery store near us. The front of the place is all knick knacks and greeting cards, and the back of the place is the most generic stationery supplies known to humankind. Much of the latter, such as old-school ledger books and peculiar pads right out of a Ben Katchor comic, probably sells a unit a year. But some of the materials are current, like calendars, and more popular items like Post-it notes and “marble” notebooks. Anyhow, it’s been funny over the years to watch this item move from the “popular” category to the “rarely sold” category, without ever actually physically changing its location in the store.
