De Atramentis BOOKWORM scented ink

 

Is it an Ink or is it a Stink?  :) 

 

Ink%20Bottle%202%20FPN_zpszy5wrsrs.jpg

 

 

Dear FPN Friends

 

I am a great fan of De Atramentis http://www.de atramentis.comthe small family run business of the utterly passionate and friendly Dr.Franz- Josef Jansen. This company produces over 255  hand inks.... HANDMADE in GERMANY :)

 

Until now I was not really a fan of scented inks... But er that has changed abruptly now.... why...

 

 

Well as some of you might know from my profile I am a READING ADDICT and an INKOHOLIC.... De Atramentis has made a lovely dark green ink

 

with the smell of OLD BOOKS AND ANCIENT LIBRARIES... that is like heroine to a drug addict :D

Our little reading room and a detail picture of one of our bookshelfs :wub:  ( a bit of a language mess books are in Dutch, German and English :wacko: )

 

De Atramentis Bookworm Ink

 

Bookworm%20drawing%20FPN_zpscwojim6y.jpg

 

Sorry I am not a great artist :unsure:  my Bookworm at the bottom looks more like the kind of " worm" that gets women pregnant and produces children :)

 

The text on the book does neither express my personal believes nor my political views... In my humble opinion there is no room for that here. It is also NOT meant to offend people in anyway... I saw it merely as a practical joke :D  But maybe it inspires people to read more books and may be it inspires people to do some more critical thinking and helps people to looks at hings from different angles and perspectives.... Welll that is a good thing after all I guess

For the Sake of Humanity I ho e that these inks will be available all over the world and it's surroundings   ;)  SOON! Maybe I write the always friendly Rik and Dennis of http://la.couronneducomte.nl an E-mail..... They are always willing to help us FPN-ers     :thumbup:  Rik told me no problem what you need we can almost always order it    :thumbup:

 

The Colour

 

Deep dark green. I would call it pine forest green or moss green... Just lke i called the green of the De Atramentis Jane Austen Ink http://www.fountainp...e-austen-green/

 

Ink Vomit on a normal paper with a bit of a blowjob :)

Comparion of D-A Bookworm and D-A Jane Austen

 

comp%20jane%20bookworm%20FPN_zpsmx3ttipd

 

 

 

It appears to me that the basis of the Jane Austen and the Bookworm is similar.... Colours are very much  a like... But beautiful in my opinion :wub:

 

 

The Scent

 

Does this ink has a nice  smell.... In my opinion YES!!! OLD BOOKS!!!. I can Imagine that this is not to everyones liking.

 

The scent is very decent though. After a few days there is only as smell left if your nose is close to the paper.... This make it suitable for everyday work.... Only the Connaisseur will know :)

 

 

Ink Behaviour 

 

Bookworm%20Handtest%20FPN_zpsikfisqfs.jp

 

 The ink behaves excellently.... 

 

No feathering at all. Showthrough is very little and is even acceptable withbroader nibs

 

The inks  is very wet and smoot but very quickly drying.... Maybe this is an ink you should consider if you are a lefthand writer....

 

Because of it's wetness and excellent lubrication the writng experience is very smooth... Even in potentially scratchy (0.8 italic) nibs :thumbup:

 

Waterproof

 

This ink had a 1-hour Jacques Cousteau diving experience in a bowl of water.... Although the colour and the scent have vanished..... The words are completely and utterly legible....

 

Another reason why this ink is excellent for work

 

Verdict

 

This is my first scented ink and I like it. As a reading addict it is sort of a musthave :happyberet: .

 

The colour is very much a like of that of the De Atramentis Jane Austen.... (but with a little extra haha)

 

A lovely dark green.....

 

I :wub:  it

 

 

Regards Peter

Goodness, how intriguing - an ink that smells like a library full of old books could turn me into a chronic nib-sniffer...is that even a thing??  :)

Very nice color.  I have tried DA's scented green tea and liked it.  This may be something to acquire after the 7 bottles of green ink I have disappear.

 

Regards,

Thanks, I think! I've never been a fan, or understood the point, of scented inks. But your review, the colour and the smell of old books have me sold. Bliss!

Green tea ..... Very healthy ink :)

 

How long does the scent last and is it very profound or subtle

Exactly what I thought.... But maybe maybe i am going to buy some more....

 

I love wine and whisky.... Dr J. makes ink out of wine.... You can send him a bottle of your favourite wine and Dr J makes 12 bottles of ink out of your wine..

 

I love peaty smokey island/Islay whiskies.... Dr J carries a standard ink I have to ask  him if he can make ink of Talisker whisky :puddle:

That's because they're the same color.  Dunkelgrün / Dark Green.
