Articles I’ve read:
Taiwan Pen and Stationery Shop List (Inkantadora's International Desk) ✑ I don’t exactly know how I missed that Ana created a blog in April but I’ve got some catching up to do!
Midori Traveller's Diary 2019 (Inkdependence!) ✑ I’ve been getting back into my Traveler’s Notebook for my Instagram and for this blog. I think I need this for mine!
PenBBS 469 Double-nibbed Fountain Pen (The Gentleman Stationer) ✑ “I have yet to be disappointed by a PenBBS pen, and I’ve frankly been stunned at the level of quality they manage to produce at their current price point.” I couldn’t agree more!
The simple joy of mucking about with pens (UK Fountain Pens) ✑ I personally believe everyone should try to learn basic nib maintenance and mending and this shows why!
Ink Review #774: Papier Plume Bad Bad Leroy Brown (Mountain of Ink) ✑ This brown just screams “brown” to me. It’s such a purely brown colour to my eyes.
