In Greece, religion still holds an important role in everyday life. Even for those who might not be practicing orthodox Christianity, its references are strongly interconnected with pop culture and design. This awarded notepad’s typography is the one used in orthodox churches and scripts. It reads: “Yper Ygeias” which means for health. During Sunday mass, people can give the names of their ill loved ones in order to be read out “for their health”. What they do in “Hartovasilion” (the paper kingdom) is to promote Greek design by combining high-standard aesthetics with top-quality local production.
This is the little retro notebook to be packed for your next trip. The beautiful typography on the cover reads “Ekdromikon” which means journey in Greek. The designer and maker Aris Sotiriou creates this unique series by etching into linoleum and printing in a small, antique press found in the flea market of Athens! How amazing is this?
Never forget to take with you this handmade tote with its travel-inspired prints. For a plastic-free shopping day. Or a day at the beach. Or a night out. But mainly for your next journey, you little traveler at heart!
