Dear FPN friends.

 

I hereby review an Ink of the much loved J Herbin company... Olive Green.

 

I did this review in a bit of a different way than I usually do.

 

Tributes

 

I pay a tribute to Visamitra, American Poet Walt Witman and Austrian writer Stefan Zweig....

 

It was Visamitra who brought me to the Idea of paying these Tributes,,,, Visamitra posted a review of Organics Studio Walt Whitman a very nice green brown ink, As usual Visamitra did an EXCELLENT  job here :thumbup: .... In my humble opinion that is worse a tribute :) ...

 

Got you interested in this review.... here is the link...

Read it both the Ink and the review are utterly cool :thumbup:

 

Zweig and Whitman

 

Well How does Zweig and Whitman fit in here???

.Just in short,,,,  Walt Whitman is a famous American writer and poet,

I first read about him in a book By Dr Stefan Zweig... The world of Yesterday.... Read it it tells you a lot OF European History and Culture betwen let's say 1870 and 1942.... Easy to read and very informative.... Stefan Zweig tells a lot about Waltman here

 

For those of You not interested I first inserted a Sampler form with the basic specs.... If I got you interested read the rest...

 

Or take a sneek peak for a better Judgment of this beautiful ink..

Some Poetry :happyberet: 

 

 

Too Conclude

 

I absolutely love J Herbin, Herbin seems to be a synonym for shading  :thumbup: 

 

I love this ink for it's good ´behaviour.... It is a jolly happy colour which truly reminds me of the Oive trees  I see in France and Italy frequently....

Wow and that shading :puddle:

 

 

I do hope that I got you interested in some wonderful persons and some beautiful literature/poetry too  :happyberet:

Tricked throughout the centuries...

For centuries people had been tricked by kings & "religion-alism"

In the 20th century people got tricked by communism

Today people get tricked by (neo)capitalism  :)

Stefan Zweig is one of my favorite authors! Glad to see another Zweig (and Walt Whitman!) fan here. :)

 

I, too, am a big fan of J. Herbin ink. I do have the Vert Olive but admittedly it doesn't get used much.

 

Thank you for sharing!

Cool to hear you love Zweig too... Do you like Stephan Roth (Hiob, Radetzky March etc... )

 

I love Dutch journalist and historical writer Geert Mak too... In German Europa, an epic travel through the historical stages of 20th Europe. and amerika where he follows the trail of Joh Steinbeck in Travels wiht Charly....

 

 

Maybe we could change postcards/letters on this subject....

 

 

Lectori Salutem (this time correctly spelled wihtout an E)
