Paper, Pen, Ink And My Summer Goal

07/07/2014

On my way to my summer handwriting goal, J. Herbin Rose Cyclamen in the Platinum #3776 music nib filled a page of the lovely Clairefontaine notebook. A television in the background provided some of the material. Other words contain letters that need practice. Exercise using a fantastic fountain pen is such sweet fun.

Fountain Pens And The Long, Hot Summer

06/22/2014

My fountain pens have grown annoyed with me. They get filled with colorful inks and then languish in the summer heat for lack of use. Even after winnowing the abused few to only five or six, they get far too little playtime to remain content. In fact since acquiring a laptop, and more recently finding my enthusiasm for writing in a journal on the wane, fountain pens do not get their due.

To shake things up over the summer, I’ve dedicated a lined, Clairefontaine notebook to exercising fountain pens. Nothing special save filling pages with alphabets and nonsense though I intend to explore styles of calligraphy as the days progress. Italics and flexible nibs will get the most time in hand since they need extra practice. First up is a Namiki Falcon SF with Diamine Teal. The Waterman pens are sure to follow.

Do you change your routine during summer beyond modifying your ink wardrobe? How do you keep things fresh in the sweltering heat?

Note: The stone is from the River Jordan and quite accustomed to summer heat. In fact it remains cool no matter what goes on around it. Food for thought.
