i love FILOFAX, especially the a5 leather planners, just because they give me the perfect excuse to write with my hands, using a pen, and do therapeutic collages there. its origins go way back to the first world war when an englishman working in the states came across an american organizing system consisting largely of technical leaves for engineers & scientists, then a london based company was founded in 1921 to market personal organization systems by mail order. nine years later, they registered the trademark "filofax", meaning "file of facts". my collection include a black and a blue OSTERLEY. the latest find is a MALDEN in ochre color that i got in london. you know with blogging and typing on your iphone too much, your calligraphy will eventually fade into oblivion. and we can't let this happen more filofax filofax spread 3 filofaxes 3 filofax 1 3 filofaxes 2 filofax 2
