Modern material culture: matchbook stickies

The sticky note matchbooks are sold by a novelty outfit called Kikkerland.They were impossible to resist, right there at the cashier's desk at the south Whole Earth Provision Company, and for about two dollars. Four little matchbook-style fold-over covers, each in a different color, contain stapled-in blocks of small yellow stickies, with a tear-off performation. They're wonderful for temporarily marking calendars or for jotting tiny notes. Each "matchbook" is marked "WRITERSBLOK." By the way, it's easy to forget that Whole Earth, along with Terra Toys and Eco-Wise, is a good place to look for toys and books, and not just for children.
