Ink sheen is intriguing, but using a cooperative paper can make even less well-endowed inks show a little dazzle…

Sunday Reads: Cussin’, Ice Cream and Vivid Color

08/06/2017

Stillman & Birn and Traveler’s Notebooks are always on my desk and I was delighted to find new ways to use them.

This week’s color inspiration came from a slideshow of birds. Matching fountain pen inks to them could be an entertaining endeavor though the colors seem brighter than what inkdom currently offers. What do you think?

Oh, and remember to leave a comment at the Herbin “1798” Jacques Herbin Amethyste de l’Oural Fountain Pen Ink giveaway. One entry per person. Drawing will be on August 10th. U.S. residents only.

Too Many Inked Fountain Pens

12/18/2013

December is far and away the busiest month and this year has been the worst ever. A thirteen pen rotation is quite excessive under the circumstances. So here it is before half of them get a bath and go into storage for several weeks at least.

Fountain Pens and Written Samples

At least two are certain to remain on my desk: the red Lamy Safari with Diamine Emerald because it amuses me this time of year and the Platinum #3773MU because it makes writing a pleasure. The Pelikan pens will remain in use for now along with at least one Namiki Falcon and a Levenger True Writer. Well, at least that’s the plan. Six pens seems like a lot, but inadequate in terms of inks. Being an inkophile is hard work!

When Matchy-Matchy Looks Fantastic

11/25/2013

“Fantastic” isn’t one of my usual adjectives though the ninth Doctor Who, Christopher Eccleston, made it sound perfect for anything that ought to be fun/exciting/challenging/dangerous. When he said it with that enormous grin, no telling what would happen next.

What does that have to do with matchy-matchy? Faustine Vaughn (@FaustineK on Twitter) posted images that show how perfect Black n’ Red notebooks look with a red Lami Safari. Those red spiral rings are just the thing to pair with the colorful barrel and that neutral white paper has yet to meet a fountain pen ink it didn’t like.

In a word? Fantastic!
