Sunday Notes and Links

About two weeks ago on Pens Paper Inks … Whatever Julie B published pictures of her pen collection, just under 100 of them. This week those pictures got captions to identify the pens. Always fun to see a pen collection. A lot of nice pens, but this is one of the few times I didn’t come away with a urge to get some new pens. Like I said, a lot of nice pens so I think it means I’m content with my current accumulation. At least for now.

Inktronics has a review of the U.S.S Constitution fountain pen. An interesting pen made from a bit of local history.

Crónicas Estilográficas has an article comparing gold and steel nibs. (via) For my part, if I have a choice of nib material I go with the less expensive steel.

With over 2 1/2 feet of snow on the ground outside my window it’s a good day to do some reading. The Pen Addict hosted this months Carnival of Pen, Pencil, and Paper and there’s a lot of good reading in the list.  I enjoyed the article about pen ergonomics from the JetPens blog. A little different than the standard fare and one I missed when it was first published.
