I still love notebooks and pencils and stamps and erasers and anything that makes me feel like I'm about to LEARN SOMETHING.

I still love notebooks and pencils and stamps and erasers and anything that makes me feel like I'm about to LEARN SOMETHING.

As the nerdiest child who has ever existed, I used to majorly get down with some school supplies. (I was also super-psyched to go to first grade from kindergarten because I heard we were going to get HOMEWORK.) Some things never change! Today I still love notebooks and pencils and stamps and erasers and anything that makes me feel like I'm about to LEARN SOMETHING.

I can't even bring myself to get a Kindle because I need to smell the books.

I also know that our editors here have superior taste, so I asked around to bring you some of the best school supplies for grown-ups. Our picks below.

This reminds me of those robot arms that spray paint cars on assembly lines. McQueen used them to paint a dress on Shalom for the finale of his 2001 show.
