I don't normally look in the P&PP forum (it reminds me too much of work) but I wandered in here today. I'm glad I did; there is some very nice nib eye candy.

Here are a few of shots of mine that are close at hand.

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

I'm loving these nib shots! Some of the plain nibs are gorgeous in their simplicity, wow. This Sheaffer Connaisseur seems downright baroque in comparison:

I have more, just haven't uploaded them yet.

They flow across paper as a brush to canvas, transforming my thoughts into words and my words into art.
There is nothing else like it; the art of writing and the painting of words!”
