22 Inks Do Not Make a Crowd2010/01/01
Just in case you were wondering, I did not have 22 pens inked at one time to make this comparison. It took over a month’s worth of refills to produce this inky delight. Being an inkophile is hard work!
Some of the colors are dead-on. Others are merely close. Between my scanner and monitor there can be no agreement despite my best efforts to broker reconciliation. Still you get the general idea.
The paper is from the recycled version of the Quo Vadis Minister Planner for 2010. I love the fountain pen in the corner and would enjoy notepads with the same image.
There is one small caveat. Some of the writing samples look slightly wider than normal for these pens but that isn’t unusual for fountain pen ink on recycled paper. If you are comparing nibs, this isn’t the best example to use.
