The new edition of the pen and paper carnival is up at the Whatever blog, and there’s some great reading to be done.
The cool thing about the carnival is that it always leads us to brilliant new blogs we haven’t seen before. The bad thing about the carnival is that it leads us to brilliant new blogs – which we then start reading, instead of getting our work done.
This edition is no exception, with several outstanding little pieces worth spotting. Our favourites:
A video by Greasemonkeyhands showing him writing with a flexible nib Pilot Falcon. His handwriting is amazing, especially considering he’s holding a camera in the other hand.
Margana sharing a poignant bit about her journals, past and present, at Inkophile.
And Eric telling a great story about how he became the new owner of a 108-year-old Waterman fountain pen that belonged to a family member in France.
We’re excited to be hosting the 11th edition of the carnival and will be looking forward to your submissions.
