Links From Films To Vinyls To Typewriters


This batch is heavy on saluting the past with a couple of nods to the present…


  1. What a shame that “retro” turned out to refer to fountain pens in general and not a particular one. (At my house, fountain pens are kind of modern as far as writing implements go.)


    • 🙂 Some people think using any pen is retro. Whipping out a fountain pen may not make converts, but my pens do bring up their respect a notch. It’s a start at least.


      • My most retro fountain pen–a Sheaffer “No Nonsense” Italic pen from the sixties in suburban rec-room green–will never be mistaken for a status pen, even if the nib was hand shaped and sharpened by the great San Francisco calligrapher Ward Dunham. I have to start writing with it to get ooohs and aaahs.


        • What a nice pen! It must be great fun to use.
