Is it a hobby? Obsession? Passion? Who knows, but I really really love fountain pens and it's great to be able to share that with everyone in this wonderful community. Here's the one which started me back on the FP journey after years in the rollerball wilderness: my pride and joy Montegrappa Miya. With lush Diamine Blue Black on Rhodia. Thanks to everyone for your likes and kind words. #fountainpen#fpgeeks#diamine#mymontegrappa#fpcommunity
It was all going so well.. Yesterday out Pokemon hunting, today projectile vomiting (and the rest). That's my 8 year old son by the way, not me, although I admit I do enjoy a spot of Pokemon hunting too. Hoping for a full recovery for the big day and that the rest of us survive unscathed...#norovirus#mymontegrappa#fingerscrossed
Back from 5 days solid of conference and board meetings! Just got my hands on this Italian @fabriano_boutique A4 4mm dot pad. Apparently they started making paper in the 1200s - now that is a lot of history! This is absolutely GORGEOUS paper. The 4mm dots suit my writing perfectly (rather than 5mm). The covers come in a range of lush colours. Suits my @montegrappaitalia Miya perfectly! Love it! #mymontegrappa#FPGeeks#fountainpen#paperporn
Ahh finally a week off work, fantastic English spring weather (mostly!!) and some much needed family time. Just getting round to some overdue pen maintenance too, the Miya has been empty waaaaaay too long. Cleaned and refilled with the ever faithful Diamine Blue Black. #fountainpen#fpgeeks#mymontegrappa#montegrappaitalia#diamine
Received this *very* generous gift recently from someone who is vey dear to my heart - you know who you are! Absolutely fascinating reading, learning about the humble origins of these world famous brands. Packed with lovely photos and lots of (now funny) adverts from the olden days. Note there was no Montegrappa on the front cover so *had* to put that right, obviously! #fpgeeks#fountainpen#history#readinganactualbook#gift#friends#montegrappaitalia#mymontegrappa
#Repost@montegrappaitalia (@get_repost) ・・・ Montegrappa takes you back in time to Ancient Egypt with the limited edition pens Thoth, dedicated to the Egyptian god of writing and inventor of the alphabet. Papyrus or paper, it doesn't matter, writing with Thoth pens is a magical experience.
