Because of this thread, I ended up taking a book binding course in Toronto, and started making my own TR paper journals. At least now I can be assured I'll never run out.
I am unsure whether to read that as this thread was beneficial or detrimental. In any case, taking a bookbinding workshop is also on my bucket list. As a former librarian and lifelong lover of books, I think I would enjoy it, even if I did not make books beyond the workshop. Only because I have now amassed such a large amount of blank books, without lines and I would love to make one by hand myself to see whether I can do it. There are workshops or something in my state of North Carolina, Black Mountain something or other. Hope you simply took this thread for what it was meant to impart and that is to provide, inform and find out from others about an experience with someone who provides something, in this case, journals. There are other threads about the experiences of people who have gone to Nibmeisters, purchased pens from the classified here or Ebay, inks, etc. from businesses and their experiences. If I were someone, I would welcome a consensus as to whether others were satisfied, experienced any issues, such as the cost of shipping, timeliness of shipping, product living up to expectation. Unless we have some wealthy folks here who don't mind throwing money away and not receiving what is expected. If so, I am near a military base, retired and could still always use extra funds to purchase more bottles of red ink, blank journals cream unlined paper, or another fountain pen or two. Right now, a 16mm, piston fill Ryan Kruisac handmade exotic wood fountain pen is on the top of my list.
