Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 65

Earlier this month, Stuart swung by The Vancouver Pen Shop and bought three pen-related items (none of which were fountain pens!) ...

Stuart writes: "At Van Pen yesterday, I got a glass pen made by Janelle Tyler. It's great - so easy to sample inks with it, and it writes beautifully. I chose a Medium-Fine point, and the pen has a spiral handle - if you rotate it, it can just about hypnotize you!"


Stuart: "I also got a bottle of one of the latest Robert Oster inks, Australis Rose, a lovely dusty rose, the nearest thing I’ve seen to Sheaffer’s old Persian Rose, a much-coveted colour.  I filled my VPC Leonardo with it, and the stub nib gives the colour nice shading and depth."


Stuart: "I bought a bottle of another SE (Special Edition) ink from Montblanc - it goes with a pen that’s an Homage to Moctezuma I, ruler of the Aztec empire.  The ink is called Pierced Sky, interestingly.  It’s a lovely turquoise that leans to the green side of that shade of blue, so it’s a nice companion to the blue-er Maya Blue turquoise that came out earlier."

Stuart - thanks very much for sharing your new purchases with us :)
VPC members - if you have any new pen/ink/paper-related acquisitions you'd like to share with us on our club's website, please email your photos and text to me and I'll post them here as part of our ongoing virtual "show & tell". Thanks in advance!~Maja
