Ruth, fascinating history about green dye. One of my favorite scenes in "A Knight's Tale" is when they make a suit from green drapes, and then dance to a remixed version of David Bowie's "Golden Years."
Jack (aka BarkingPig), thanks again for the Akkerman no. 24 -- your Candela will be in the mail tomorrow.
Prithwijit, thank you -- I am envious of many inks available in India. Vaibhav Mehandiratta has prepared beautifully detailed reviews of several Daytone inks, and his recent reviews of Krishna yellow valley and ghat green are terrific. (And Krishna monsoon sky and mangal and ....) We are looking forward to the day when these inks become available in other markets.
Chrissy, we are going to create the optimal tobacco/cigar-colored ink, regardless of whether it resembles P&M Cigar or newly available Cuban Churchills!
