Be Sure to Wear Some Flowers in Your Hair

Above is the cover design for Japanese ‘Rainbow’ Ne-Ne stationery note-paper designed ca. 1969.

Japan has a plethora of smart pieces of stationery with both practical and sophisticated design elements. Japan is the design stationery capital of the world. Stationery fans love to visit Japan for so many reasons but most of all it is to see a thriving culture of loving stationery! Precise, elegant, and refined, design stationery notebooks, pens, pencils and accessories ‘Made in Japan’ are of the highest and most enduring quality.

  • As for information about the image above: The artist details are unknown, but the paper appears to be related to Nakamra Seiko, who produced the Seiko Quartz Astron 35 SQ, which was the first quartz wristwatch on the market.
  • Regardless of its Seiko connection, it sure is colourful, and if you wear some flowers in your hair, …

maybe … summertime will be a love-in there.
