Back(pack) to School

August 24, 2011, 16:37 pm  Posted by Lark

 Ah, the Back to School Season is upon us. I still remember that early, giddy sense of anticipation as I’d organize my pencil box, stack new workbooks into neat piles, and plan my outfit for the first day of school. As the years progressed, of course, that giddiness was slowly replaced by a sense of dread—summer vacation never felt long enough. [Side note: my AP English teacher in high school posted this quote from Dante’s Inferno over his classroom door “Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.” It was completely appropriate.]


Despite those times of sweet sorrow when the summer ended and classes began, it was always a treat to have that “new thing” for going back to class, whether it was a new book, new crayons, a new haircut, or even just a lot of rest and relaxation from the break. One of my favorite new things was a new backpack—that trusty cornerstone of the student experience.


These Etsy artists sure have the backpack mastered: from cute and clever to streamlined and sophisticated, this array of creativity has me feeling that Back to School eagerness all over again. Thanks to the talented designers featured below for creating such amazing work!
