What's up at Ravens March.

Vintage pens-Handmade books-Silly statements

Plus an Unrelated Reading Assignment

Posted by Dirck on 14 March, 2014

Before I got to today’s film, I thought I should mention here (as I’m told self-promotion is no longer viewed askance) that my Etsy endeavour is now capable of transactions without resort to Paypal, and that includes Etsy gift cards.  I should probably reinforce the few lonely puppies in that shop window.

Now, on to the fun– a trip to another pen factory!  This one takes us to the Pilot factory in distant Japan; make sure to click the “CC” button at the bottom of the window for the subtitles. There’s frequent appearances of a demonstrator pen in the original use of the term, and plenty of places for Joel and the ‘bots to shout “Watch your fingers!”

It’s the lady at about 12’30” that runs up the price on these things. Because she stands in the overlap between craft and art.

Also, BBC has taken notice of InCoWriMo (or something similar; there’s a broken link); it’s worth a look.

Today’s pen: Lamy 2000
Today’s ink: Pelikan black
