Mr. Boddington's Studio

Sometimes you come across something that is just so cleverly done that you wonder why you didn't get those creative genes?  Mr. Boddington is like that.  Look and you will understand.....

Mr. Boddington has created a stationery line that appears to cater to the wedding set although he offers stationery, gift cards and the like on his website Mrboddington.com.  

Seeing this stuff makes you want to go out and have a huge party doesn't it?  There's more...

He has a great Facebook site and you can order from his website, see his stuff in New York or schedule a phone call.

I love what he has put on his website:

The history of Mr. Boddington
(grab a pot of tea and kick your feet up friends.
He tends to love an adventure, and has from the start).
What we do know about the elusive Mr. Boddington
is that he was born with
the deepest aubergine ink on his thumbs, quite literally.
The shocked nurse Pagent of the New Amsterdam Hospital nearly dropped the
newly born Master Boddington on his head.
As a child he moved around the world with his parents,
his nanny and a caravan of royal supporters.
His first correspondence was sent from
an island in the south Pacific at the age of five.
He requested ten boxes of “Van Dyke” Drawing Pencil No. 600.
And as a young adult he apprenticed with
the Russian Tsar Nicholas’ correspondence court.
He married a stunning duchess on a small hillside in Udiapur, India,
where he first applied silk to the back of a postcard.
It was from her wedding gown.
Mr. Boddington owns a vintage Capri fishing yacht
and drinks Bombay gin and tonics while
eating bread with orange marmalade.

And although never confirmed,
it has been said that Mr. Boddington exhibits
no t
Many years ago, Mr. Boddington grew smitten with the city of New York
and declared it to be the heart of his growing correspondence empire.

Above the old fur shops on West 29th Street,
you will find a team of talented artists, designers,
illustrators, production specialists and biscuit nibblers hard at work.
Much of Mr. Boddington’s correspondence is letterpressed on premium cotton stock or printed in
brilliant flat matte. Our paper is tailored by hand, including envelope liners and wallpaper backings.
All custom work is drawn by hand.

By all means check out this creative genius!  Inspiring to us that have his gene pool but we can always buy, can't we?
