" The Twenty-Six Old Characters" - 1947 W. A. Sheaffer Pen Company Movie
elysee posted a topic in Fountain & Dip Pens - First StopYou may enjoy watching "The Twenty-Six Old Characters", a 1947 movie made by the W. A. Sheaffer Pen Company. http://youtu.be/1xUDehNvbrE This movie contains a brief history of writing from the use of pictures to the development and use of letters as well as a brief history of the development of pens. In addition, the movie includes a discussion of the function and workings of fountain pens and some filler systems. Of course, since the movie was made by the W. A. Sheaffer Pen Company, Sheaffer fans should particularly enjoy it. Can you identify the pens used in the movie? ; ) Enjoy! : )
