Pens and Things
We're saying good-bye to the TWSBI 580 AL in Orange. We just got our last shipment in, and once those are gone, they'll be gone!
We know the best things in life are brown. Worn-in leather boots, chocolate & coffee, some of my favourite inks like Lie de The or Diamine Ochre
I hope you enjoyed the last blog post on our visit to Coach House Press! We certainly enjoyed looking around, but the visit was especially exciting because we got to pick up a project we've been working on with John.
Now, let me tell you, we have received so many phone calls, emails, visits, messages on social media, telepathic dreams and more about these Lamy CopperOrange Al-Stars.
Many companies make italic or stub nibs as an option for their pens, including Lamy, TWSBI, Edison, and of course, Kaweco. These "italic" or "calligraphy" nibs are primarily a European writing style, so you may not find them as often on Japanese or Asian pens, except as a music nib.

Jon has gone off and left me with these two non-contributing members of the family, and so I thought it would be a good time to get some writing done.
One of the best things about holidays in general is that it's an opportunity to use inks that may not normally make it into the rotation
