Just Landed: Three Stars!

Straight out of Hamburg, Germany, we have just received our newest (and probably most retro) brand - Three Stars! Established in 1870, Three Stars is Germany's oldest chalk manufacturer and has, in many ways, contradicted some German stereotypes for me.

You know the one - the exacting, precise German. The humourless chemist, the ruthless industrialist, the form-follows-function designer...none to be found here.

For starters, the Three Stars (Drei Sterne) logo is an instant classic and their packaging is so replete with low-fi irony that I just can't get over it.

The pastels are awesome, the crayons make me wish that i was back in kindergarten and the carpenter pencils are fuelling my previously mentioned pencil fetish. Click through to see Germany's finest, most emphatically non-German stationery.
