The great thing about the triumphant march of technology is that it reminds you of the simple pleasures you once took for granted like writing, pens and ink.
Because now a great script stands out instantly.
Even more so if the ink is coloured. I went through years at secondary school writing in either green or purple ink but now that doesn’t only seem a life time ago, it is a lifetime ago. But a fountain pen with green ink is top of my Christmas list this year. A new trend? Probably.

My ink of choice would be Akkerman, a Dutch company who’ve been making inks for over a hundred years. Their unique bottle originating from the 1930’s is poetry in motion – tilt the closed ink bottle and the neck fills itself up with ink. Placed the bottle on a flat surface again and the marble falls back in the neck to trap the ink creating a perfect reservoir – even when the pot is almost empty.
