Pen and Ink Serendipity06/25/2010
Now that it is officially summer and my seasonal palette has been established, an unexpected duo has taken first place in my rotation. Both the ink and the pen have been here for years but never joined. So putting them together was sheer serendipity and the result delightful especially for this time of year.
Diamine Violet + Namiki Falcon + Rhodia = Happiness
Not only did this beautiful combo just come out of hiding, but not long ago two more special ones emerged. Montblanc Racing Green is the perfect match for my Lamy Safari custom cursive italic. The second is Private Reserve Avacado in my Waterman Carene stub. Both came about without planning. The inks just happened to be up for use and the pens just happened to need filling. Ink and pen mating should always be so easy.
Have you been surprised by a particularly lovely but unplanned pen and ink pairing? Do tell!
