Those who give themselves selflessly, putting their lives on the line as they leave their families far away — all so we can enjoy life, liberty & the pursuit of happiness (not to mention gorgeous stationery) really deserve more than a day. Perhaps a day every month, or even an entire month would be more fitting? Be that as it may, today is the day we thank them all for their extreme sacrifices.
I think the jaunty, spirited feel of this Fawnsberg offering — inspired by washi tape — perfectly captures that indestructible and unmistakably American vim and verve. To me it almost has a quilt-like feel and conjures up thoughts of Betsey Ross toiling away to come up with a great flag design. Appropriately called Continental, it is available singly for $3.50 or in folio sets of six for $16.50.
