Happy FPD10, I knew this was coming but procrastination is a wonderful thing. Anyway, for those who don’t know, Fountain Pen Day was established 10 years ago, it is celebrated internationally on the first Friday in November. The day was established “to help embrace, promote, and share the use of fountain pens in day-to-day life, as well to help revive handwriting as a whole.” Proof I am not the only weirdo out there.
I did not plan to post today but after all the emails I received and some comments on Facebook I felt compelled. Our friends at Well-Appointed Desk mentioned an ink that totally got my attention. I am so gullible (yup a sucker born every minute) and immediate went to their website and purchased a bottle along with a bottle “Bayou Nightfall.”
“Papier Plume‘s special FPD ink: Cafe Diabolique which was blended to be an exact match for Cafe Brulot, a trance-inducing after-dinner coffee ritual which is still being performed by a few old-school waiters skilled in the flaming at-table ritual.”
