Posted 29 March 2016 - 08:30

For five years, around 1980, I worked for a pen manufacturer, as designer and ingeneer.  During this time I discovered that not everything that works, can be or needs to be explained.  For an ingeneer, to accept magic and let it exist in his work is a huge step.

 

Thirty odd years later, fountain pens still fascinate me, their function in particular.  Therefore, I started publishing my memoires on my web site titled Fountain Pen Magic.  You can / will find there all sorts of interesting things relating to technology, function and manufacture, as much as I can remember.

 

The link to my site is  https://fountainpend....wordpress.com/

 

Come and visit and let’s initiate communication amongst technically interested fountain pen lovers.  At the moment, I write what I believe you are interested in.  Writing can be a lonely task.  Engagement with you will be a highlight.

 

Enjoy reading and discovering

Welcome !  

 

I like the variety in fountain pens, through the years.  I am fascinated by the development and innovation, just so the ink does not make a "blob" on my paper.  Most  enteresting !   B)

... yes, I agree, I had my thoughts of moving away from Brisbane... but all the way down to Tassy?  And isn't it very cold down there?
