Fountain pens and happiness
February 27, 2008
This article about the “King of Fountain Pens” makes me rather happy. It combines many of my favourite things: Cute old men, adorable Japanese men, pictures of a workman’s hands, fine craftsmanship and fountain pens. I really do miss writing with fountain pens. I’ve been having a love affair with the simple Bic ballpoints over the past few years, as I enjoy their drag on the page, but I think I might revert to fountain pens, like I used to have to use back at school in Italy.
