Sunday Reads: Oodles Of Pen, Paper And Ink Links


That’s a first. I’ve never used “oodles” in a post, but for this bunch, it seemed just right.

A big thank you to the folks who contributed to my wealth of new inks:


Small Akkerman Inks Now At Vanness


As foretold on Inkophile and per the Vanness website:

WE NOW OFFER AKKERMAN IN THE 60ML BOTTLES- it will not be available on our website- Orders can be placed by calling the store or by emailing us.

No info on the price per bottle, but it seems they are offering free shipping with a purchase of four. Anyone interested?


Akkerman Fountain Pen Ink


Another one of those little birdies delivered a sweet rumor that Vanness Pen Shop has a stock of Akkerman Fountain Pen Ink in the 60ml size. Now that the 120ml bottles are no longer available, the smaller bottles will have to do. With free shipping for a qualified order, it might be time to give this ink a whirl.
