Keep Calm And Carry A Fountain Pen

I took a couple of shots of one of my recent eBay acquisitions - a fountain pen made by the Shanghai M&G Stationery company in China- and decided to try some quick photo editing (~click on images to enlarge~)

Its hooded steel nib writes smoothly and the pen fits comfortably in a pocket, so it's a great little pen to carry with you on trips :)

Photos from our April and May meetings will be posted in the next few days!

The meeting will take place in their Community Room (meeting room). Tips on how to get to the library via transit are in this old post.

Theme: NIB TUNING-presentation by VPC member Jerred!
Many of you have requested this topic, so we're fortunate that Jerred agreed to do a presentation on it (complete with visual aids). Thank you, in advance, Jerred for your time and effort!

Our secondary topic is always NEWEST ACQUISITIONS (pen-related)---eg. new pens/inks/paper/pen cases/other accessories/etc, so if you have any you wish to show, please bring them with you. No need to RSVP for this meeting. Hope you can make it!
