London writer and editor Lito Apostolakou (@inklinks) has a deep appreciation for the tools of her trade. A collector of Victorian embossed glass ink bottles, eclectic pencil and pens and vintage stationary, Lito, who’s also a trained historian, says neglected writing supplies of olden days bear the signs of time and have their own hidden stories. “One can’t have too many pencils — or pencil pots for that matter,” she says. Lito combines some of these finds with stones she picks up wherever she goes and turns them into paperweights, or, as she calls them, “paperstones.” “Pebbles are layers of time, words are layers of meaning,” says Lito. “The fusion of natural and man-made materials, of soft and hard surfaces, lettering, pencils, paper and inks leads to the creation of a new object with a story. Paperstones are writing companions and inspiration aids.”
