Stationary and matching presentation box

This is a presentation box from the 1970's made out of paper, with envelopes and writing paper inside.

It is on display at the Paper Trail Visitor centre in Apsley, Hertfordshire where it was originally made.

This object is special to Kevin Dewey from The Worshipful Company of Stationers and Newspaper.

Kevin says: "This is a beautiful example of communication from the 70's, which is named stationary because you use it, you have to be still."
