Ink made from wine? How perfect for an Inkophile!2009/09/24
Yipee! Art Brown now offers De Atramentis ink in the U.S. and may I say it’s about time someone nailed down that brand for inkophiles on this side of the pond. How can anyone not be intrigued by a basic palette of 56 colors or ink that smells like coffee or ink that is made from wine? Is your interest piqued now?
At present quantities are limited so get your order in pronto if you want to be the first on your block to own a bottle or two. Unfortunately, the only color I’ve tried isn’t available in the first offering so I’ll wait to place an order in hopes Aubergine turns up in future. None remains on my shelf to write a review but it was a lovely, well-behaved ink. Hmmm. Maybe an ink made from wine would be just the thing to toast the holidays. On second thought who needs to wait for the holidays?
Note: There is a substantial difference in color, at least on my monitor, between some of the swatches at Art Brown and those at De Atramentis. I suspect the truth lies somewhere in between.
