The Thorsten von Overgaard Gallery Store - Thorsten Overgaard Calfskin Desk Blotter in 40" and 22" sizes
 
 
     

The "Always Wear a Camera" Calfskin Desk Blotter in 40" or 22"

Now in Black, Safari Green and Brown

It can't all be glass, steel and digital. I like tactile workflow, for my writing in notebooks and for writing with keyboards too. Soft leather on my table, with lots of space for what I do. I wanted that, but I couldn't find the quality, size nor simplicity that I wanted. So I made my own, and now you can get it too.

My new desk blotter is made for working in style and comfort: With a comfortable size of 36" x 19" (90 x 45 cm) there is plenty of space on the 40" Desk Blotter to the left and right for cups, notes, cameras and all else you want to have handy. Soft, beautiful, elegant, simple, water resistant and non-reflective. I also make a 22" Desk Blotter (see further down).

Your new home for everything you love

A "blot" is an ink spot. Desk blotters were originally made to avoid blots on the table. For me the large desk blotter serves to give me a familiar home on my desktop, damping the sound and feel of the keyboard when I write, as well as a "larger than life" personalized area to write on paper and read books. Business and pleasure in one place. A simple but important foundation for your writing, reading, browsing.

The "Larger than Life Mouse Pad"

No more need for a small mouse pad. The Desk Blotter is the perfect surface for using a mouse.

The desk blotter was made for modern writing with keyboard and mouse, as well as good old school writing with ink and paper. Your mouse will love the surface. No mouse has ever had that large a mouse pad to fool around on.

Some just want good food and a camera

We've made a smaller version for those who just want a desk blotter for writing letters on, which can also be a used as a comfortable, soft piece of luxury under the MacBook (softer feel and softer sound), or can make a festive table for nerds who like to talk about photography.

The smaller 22" Desk Blotter is 17.5" x 13.7" (44x34cm). It can be used for the dining table as a place mat, for the smaller writing table, or just to give the cameras a soft place to lie at night.

Made for writing: The texture is suited for handwriting, even on one thin sheet of air-mail paper. Several tests were done with different types of leather before we decided on a leather that will last for many years. The texture is made for soft work, and even though hard use every day will give it some patina, this will not leave marks you may later regret.Made for writing: The texture is suited for handwriting, even on one thin sheet of air-mail paper.

Comfortable: It's just a great rest for your hands and your eyes, and it invites one to indulge in tactile things like reading books and writing letters.

From a customer, his desk with the 40" desk blotter in black calfskin.

Simple design that makes sense: I love good design that is both simple and practical. It has to fit in and support other things, not make noise with extreme over-design. This is the reason for my ventilated lens shades, desk blotters and the camera straps I make. I like beautiful stuff that works, and I like things that are made to last.
