|Welcome to My Pen Site!||Version française|
|OUNTAIN PENS offer the writer a delightful aesthetic experience; theyre pleasing to use, and they produce a distinctive handwriting that cannot be achieved by any other means. (Read my essay about fountain pens.)
As a writer, I started with modern pens. Once Id become thoroughly hooked, I began collecting vintage pens (made before 1960) not with the intention of building a massive collection but rather with an eye toward a small number of American pens that I find interesting because of certain design features, because theyre classics or type examples, or just because theyre cool.
Once I had become fascinated with collecting and using pens, it was only natural that I should begin restoring them, both for myself and for others.
Whats new? Ive added a page of information to help you date a Parker Vacumatic. Ive replaced my black military-clip Balance with a gold striated one. And Ive added pop-up lists to show you what pens are on each page of my collection.
|Note: The pen images here are not life size, but they are all the right size relative to each other.|
