Sunday Notes and Links – April 24, 2016

What I Used

I didn’t use my pens much this week. Most of my writing when right to the keyboard. So no favorite this week.

What Others Are Using and Doing

Rob at Dot Cross Dot tackled Finding a Better Bottle. Ian then took a look at the bottles on Pens! Paper! Pencils! and Scribble examined them on United Inkdom.

Susan told us how she gets her great photos in The Art of Fountain Pen Photography on The Pen Addict.

Bruno from Crónicas Estilográficas told us about visiting a pen exhibition.

The Pelikan’s Perch gives The Story Behind Pelikan 4001 Blue-Black which reminded me it’s a good time to place an overseas order for those items hard to find in the U.S.

Goodwriterspens’s Blog has an eBay purchase I’m fascinated by, both by it’s contents and the lost history it represents – The Summit Pen Repair Kit And Manual
