Color is the first hook for any ink. From jewel tones to muted whispers, color gets us where it matters. We buy what appeals to us and then share it with friends and associates via the written word. But what does that color communicate?
The August 2016 issue of Pen World magazine has an article I wrote called Signature Ink. Nicky Pessaroff, the new editor, was kind enough to send the PDF for Inkophile readers, but here is one of the graphics to get you started.

If you aren’t a Pen World subscriber, there is nothing quite like having a beautifully photographed, well-written magazine in your hands. The colors are true unlike what passes for accuracy on an electronic display. You should see the Staedtler ad on the back cover of the August issue. It is absolutely stunning. And that’s just an ad! You’ll have to subscribe to find out what’s on the inside.
