The rules are few and simple:)
1) Simply write out Verse 1 of Psalm 45 (any version) with a fountain pen in your best hand and post to this thread.
2) You may use any form of lettering. Decorate if you wish; the artistic expression is up to you. (Check out Ann Finley's rendition from Rainer Rilke's Letters to a Young Poet: Welcome to the Penmanship Forum)
3) Contest ends Midnight EST July 1, 2011.
~ Winners will be announced July 3 ~
~ Judges will be a variety of FP lovers/users.
1rst Prize ~
A truly stunning uncommon orange Parker 45 with a factory stub re-ground and polished into a
Pendleton Point smooth, elegant, Butter~line Stub (or will take down to a Cursive Itralic if winner prefers)
2nd & 3rd prizes will be a custom Pendleton Point
Butter~line Stub on one of your nibs.
I think the $30 price for the factory Stub was original.
The cap is not original to the pen. I liked the jeweled UK version and since it has been my personal 45 for several years I put all the components I wanted on it. Best filler unit IMHO as well.
