Hand Crafted Digital Identities

Originally the term stationery referred to all products sold by a stationer, whose name indicates that his book shop was on a fixed spot, usually near a university, and permanent, while medieval trading was mainly peddlers and others (such as farmers and craftsmen) at non-permanent markets such as fairs.

It was a special term used between the 13th and 15th centuries in the manuscript culture. The Stationers’ Company formerly held a monopoly over the publishing industry in England and was responsible for copyright regulations. Images provided by Heydays.no
