Stationery that looks good enough to eat – in pictures

When he turned seven, Neal Whittington’s uncle gave him a £7 WH Smith voucher: this started a lifelong obsession with stationery. After studying graphic design, he now owns stationery shop Present & Correct in north London. “I always wanted it to feel like a sweet shop of desk supplies,” Whittington says. The rubbers, in particular, have a “confectionery-like quality” and he creates colourful geometric patterns with them for Instagram (#pandcerasers). He sources them from all over the world: Italy, Spain, the Czech Republic, Japan, the US. “We should celebrate erasers – they allow us to correct mistakes and beautify drawings,” he says. “Pencils are celebrated universally and erasers are their life partner, so they should get equal billing.”
