Vintage pens-Handmade books-Silly statements


Posted by Dirck on 28 July, 2011

As I’m undertaking The Great Work of website re-writing, I’m working at expanding my scholarship.  A recent arrival has helped immensely with this– a book devoted entirely to Esterbrook pens.  It’s a slender volume, but it’s extremely heavy in utility, and I recommend it unreservedly.  It ties together a lot of diverse strings of information I’ve previously discovered, and it’s also a love letter (or at least a note of extreme regard) to a pen that has occasionally been somewhat disregarded.

Have I piqued your curiosity?  Are you anxious to get your own copy?  Well, you can get it from the author through his website, and if you’re interested in the history of pens as all, you really should.  The Fountain Pens of Esterbrook by Paul Hoban– a bonanza of information at a bargain price!

Today’s pen: Parker Challenger (but there is an Esterbrook 444 not forty centimeters from my right hand)
Today’s ink: Wancher Asuka (the brown one)
