A smart take on the novelty paperclip trend, Clip Art features ten paperclip designs, drawn from historical patent records. The elegant, thick grey envelope holds a glassine bag filled with silver and brass paperclips (ten different designs, two of each). The package features both gold and silver stamping; each design is shown on the cover and annotated with year of design. Clip Art is sure to appeal to designers, vintage-lovers, stationery obsessives and anyone looking for a sophisticated gift.
