Here's a picture of us all after a great dinner at Moxie's on Davie St. Thanks to Maja for organising it, to Richard who normally hosts our meetings in his store, Perks, to all our great members - oh, and thanks Mike for directing our waitress to compose this shot so artistically.

Recommended book

Hi All - I just picked this up from the Richmond Chapters. It's a history of handwriting: "Script and Scribble" by Kitty Burns Florey. Very good for the price too, reduced to $4.99 At the time I was there, they had a stack of these on the sale table.

A little departure from our usual venue---September 2010 meeting details

As a little departure from our regular venue, September's VPC meeting will be held at Moxie's Classic Grill restaurant on Davie Street in downtown Vancouver as a little "thank you" for our VPC host, Richard Clarke of Perks pen shop.

Meeting theme: Newest Acqusitions (new pens/paper/inks/accessories you've acquired lately).

*** Please RSVP by emailing us at as I have to re-confirm table space with the folks at Moxie's. I have tentatively reserved a large table for 12 (VPC history buffs, take note: this is the table where the very first VPC meeting was held!)
