It was an eclectic week…

Got some last minute shopping to do on Amazon? Please consider using the Inkophile portal in the side bar. You can also get search results for Fountain Pens and Fountain Pen Inks via these links. It won’t increase your cost, but it will send a few pennies to my ink and pen fund. Thank you!

A bit of holiday spirit!

Herbin’s new “1798” Jacques Herbin Amethyste de l’Oural fountain pen ink was announced today with availability slated for September 1, 2017. It’s a lovely color with glints of silver that reminds me of an amethyst and platinum ring my mother bequeathed my daughter. Purple and silver are beautiful together, subtle but elegant.

Shipping to a U.S. address only. The random drawing will be held August 10, 2017 at 6 pm PDT. The winner will have 48 hours to contact me at inkophile@gmail.com to claim the prize.

Good luck to all!

Wanna give it a try?
