The Liquid Gems of Pelikan – Edelstein Golden Beryl Ink

When I was in primary school, 3rd year, I received my first fountain pen with my engraved name on it. I still remember it very vividly that it was a Pelikan bi-color (red and steel) fountain pen with a steel nib, and we all got royal blue ink with it. The time to start writing with […]

Montegrappa Dante Alighieri: Inferno – The start of a memorable trilogy

The Divine Comedy! Dante Alighieri’s epic 14,233-line narrative poem.

Discovering Yves Klein and the Caran d’Ache Klein Blue Collection
