"The Writing Desk"

If you are one of those people who feel ‘any surface will do,’ then it might be hard to understand the writing desk culture, and the personal connection many people have with the space and surface on which they work and write. In this edition of “All Things Collected,” we explore the history of the writing desk, the writing desks and habits of famous writers, the reading chair, and famous desks in history. We also learn more about Larkin desks, our fascination with inkwells, and what’s to be collected to recreate the well-appointed desk. We hope this issue inspires you to create a special space and place of your own.
