Street art and stationery

Words almost seem superfluous today, with all of these wonderful colours, so I’ll keep it brief.

Above, more street art, this time off Centre Place in the CBD. This amazing cat has unfortunately been covered in tags, posters and second and third layers of graffiti, but the talent of the artist is still evident.

In town again to drop off my last assignment for the term, I discovered that I’d left my wallet at home. Seeing I had two hours to kill before meeting Meg, and no money for shopping, I started wandering instead.

Half an hour in a prominent craft shop looking at books was followed by a trip to another equally prominent newsagent to look at magazines. A trip along Elizabeth Street saw me finally visiting Outre Gallery (I love the art of Shag – particularly Glorious Lifestyle), and then into another shop I’ve meant to visit for ages – Bookbinders Design.

The photos below are from there. This shop specialises in beautifully crafted journals, notebooks, photo albums and the like. If you’re like me and have a thing for stationery, you’d find this shop irresistible too. Just as well I’d forgotten my wallet…
