Brad and Myke maligned my emerald green Franklin-Christoph Model 02 on the last Pen Addict podcast so I had to give it some love. It’s been inked (and re-inked) since April.
Speaking of inked pens, my 13 inked pens back on the 1st has dropped to just six. Three of the Esterbrooks with iron gall inks were flushed since I have a two week limit with iron gall inks, but the other four pens were written dry.
Letter Request: Massimo Vignelli, a world famous designer, is extremely ill and it has been requested that those he’s influenced or inspired write him a letter…
According to Pentagram partner Michael Bierut, “Luca [Massimo’s son] said that Massimo would be thrilled to get notes of good wishes from people whom he’s touched or influenced – whether personally or remotely – over the years. Luca has visions of huge mail bags full of letters. I know that one of Massimo’s biggest fantasies has been to attend his own funeral. This will be the next best thing. Pass the word.”
Please send your notes, letters, cards etc to:
