I've used Jonathan Veley's Eversharp Pencil web site extensively along with his catalog but I just went to his web site and it's 404; gone. Does anyone know what happened and will he be back?

Didn't notice that but the website is off indeed.

But there is still activity on his Leadhead's Pencil Blog so maybe you can contact him directly there:

I thought I posted here, but I guess not.  If you do Facebook, he's there, or was recently.

Hey all, I'm just reading this and thought I'd post a reply.

 

I lost my hosting for the original online mechanical pencil museum site.  I built it on an aging joomla platform, so I couldn't simply move it somewhere else - I would have to manually rebuild it.  Since all of the information from the stie is included in my first book, The Catalogue of American Mechanical Pencils (including many updates and revisions), it didn't make sense to rebuild it.

 

By the way, there are less than 100 copies left of The Catalogue left.  It's still available at http://www.legendary...coilbound).html.  

 

RoyalBear, I'm sorry I don't recall seeing you trying to connect with me through the blog.  Since there's 1,100 articles at the blog and people post on different ones from time to time, it's hard for me to keep up with everyone's comments . . especially after last month's blog catastrophe . . .   

 

Last month Google wiped out the images from the first 469 articles I posted there.  I've restored about a quarter of them to date, and I'm considering whether to proceed with old plans to publish the first years' run of articles in book form.  The full story on that situation, for those who are interested, is posted at https://leadheadpenc...ghost-book.html.

 

The good news is that none of the information from the museum or the blog has been lost - it just wasn't meant to be permanent on the internet, I guess.

 

RoyalBear, the best way to connect with me is via email.  I'm at jveley@jonathanveley.com.  If you have a question I haven't answered, drop me a line.
