Dunno if I mentioned this before, but I love fountain pens.
I love the very analogue experience of putting nib to paper, the feeling of different pens, how ink reacts to paper, the very act of writing.
It’s been said that the pen is dead, but actually, like with film cameras and vinyl records, the ubiquity of faster, cheaper, easier, digital has actually created a brand new demand for old school.
One of the pleasures of fountain pens (aside from the feel of writing) is the most extraordinary variety of inks that you can buy.
And some of those inks have the most fantastic properties..
