London’s Best Stationery Shops: Quill


If you love sending truly beautiful letters then Quill is the place to go. Not only is their store a clean, white paradise of envelopes, pens and notepaper, but they also run some of the most popular calligraphy lessons in London.


Their range of stationery is beautiful. You can find cool American stationery designers like Rifle Paper Co. and Kate Spade, and Maison Martin Margiela’s hard-to-find range of stationery, or ‘objets’. The owner Lucy also designs some of the cards and notepaper.


The shop is on a charming street in Islington, and is a lovely space to hang out in and try one of their classes. The Quill team run beginners and intermediate calligraphy and brush lettering, but there is also the chance to make paper flowers or try origami in their special guest classes. You had better sign up to their newsletter if you want to try a calligraphy class, as they are fully booked months in advance!
