Vintage pens-Handmade books-Silly statements

Field Trip!

Posted by Dirck on 23 November, 2012

Does everyone have the permission slip?  Yes? Good.  Now, then… who wants to go to Heidelberg?  Lamy offers a tour of their production facilities, complete with exactly the sort of soundtrack one expects in an industrial/educational film.  Those of about my age will find nostalgia rising up to slap them on the back of the head like a whimsical zombie.

Off we go!  Play sanitary!

My fellow H.G. Wells fanciers can mull the implications of the appearance of Morlocks at about the four minute mark (they do not look like the ones in the Rod Taylor film).

Today’s pen: Parker 95
Today’s ink: Herbin Pousièrre de Lune

    The music at the very beginning reminds me of some blaxploitation flicks 🙂
    I like the part where the employees actually test the pens before they leave the factory—impressive, indeed.
