This weekend I head up to NYC for the National Stationery Show and NYNOW trade shows – which are taking place at the same time this year, for the first time ever! I’m excited to see all my stationer friends and a wee bit nervous about trying to fit two of my favorite trade shows into the same number of days. Wish me luck – and follow along on Instagram for behind the scenes peeks! Victoria from Paper Epiphanies is exhibiting at NYNOW (Booth 7215!) and sent over a quick preview of a new collection in collaboration with artist Gia Graham that will be debuting at the show!
The Gia Graham for Paper Epiphanies collection is called “The Voices” and consists of six greeting cards and three art prints that celebrate the words and life of black women. Each card and art print features a hand illustrated quote from black authors, activists, and poets – including Maya Angelou, Sojourner Truth, and Zora Neale Hurston – while the back of each card features a short biography of each woman. You can see a few more designs from the collection below, and if you’ll be at the show stop by booth 7215 to see the collection in person!
