J. Herbin Vert Réséda04/01/2009
J. Herbin Vert Réséda is another ink that evokes images of summers at the beach, cotton clothes, balloons, and warm winds. Good shading and flow make this ink delightful to use. The soft color is fun and cheerful, perfect for weekends and vacations. Unfortunately it has been a bear to scan, so take the image below with a bit of skepticism and look to the color from Herbin as more accurate.
This is such a pastel color that it begs for use with a medium to wide italic nib. Very well suited to casual correspondence or a private journal entry, Vert Réséda might not do in your day-to-day fountain pen but it would suit an off-hours companion. You do have more than one fountain pen, right?
