I am so grateful to have, two years ago, become a part of this wonderful community. I was judging a local cookoff last week and with the cookoff was a car show. I got to talking to one of the guys who had this purple pearlescent 30's sportster. It was a loud thing, and he was a big personality to boot. His father had built and rebuilt cars, so he had been going to car shows for a long time. They have their own community. He told me that a lot of times his friends don't understand why he continues to compete and go to car shows. They though him strange, but amongst "the guys" he's a little loud (I mean a bright purple and punk car!). I told him, "Dude, I understand. I collect fountain pen. My office staff tolerates my packages and giddiness. My family things it's strange."
This community started with, and I guess remains unified by out mutual love of FOUNTAIN PENS, but is made up a fantastic persons. Person who generally care for each other, who, although we may enable each other, are often very gracious and generous. In the continued spirit of that generosity, I am hosting my first giveaway.
I attempted to go on a fall theme jumping from the color of the pen, but here it is.
If you win you get:
a Franklin-Christoph Model 29 Bellus Special Edition Radiant Red with a Mike Masuyama ground Medium Italic Nib
J. Herbin 1670 Rouge Hematite
Noodler's Golden Brown
Noodler's Apache Sunset
Those three are probably my three favorite shading inks and together with the italic nib should be able to give the winner all of the colors of Autumn.
