Modern Ink To Write On Old Parchment - Diamine Registrar's?
duna posted a topic in Inky ThoughtsI have to perform an unusual task - I have to update some texts on an ancient parchment book. I will see the book (an ancient church journal, informal enough but 5 centuries old) in a few days. For more important documents on other more important and precious books a calligrapher is hired but this is a 'modest' journal and traditionally must be updated by a member of the congregation so the professionals are out of the question. I was asked to write on it as the old guys are no longer confident about this and they need someone with a firmer hand (the fools ). Too much time passed since the last time and they cannot remember which ink was used the last time, but it was something tragically normal and commercially available. I will use a modern FP (a Pelikan or a Montblanc or a Lamy, as for the latter I have calligraphy nibs if needed, I will see ) and I have some modern inks (Pilot, Diamine, Aurora, Pelikan, Montblanc) but I need something with good permanence (the book is centuries old and in excellent condition for its age and maybe good for another half millennia - I find this a little discomforting) but I was planning to use DIamine Registrar's as an ink with the correct combination of colour, permanence and good behaviour - all this in theory. I never used this ink on real parchment, only on modern papers. Any previous experience? Any suggestion? Thanks for any idea/exchange of experience on this unusual topic.
Sidebound A4 Pad (Uk/online)
horationelson posted a topic in Paper and Pen ParaphernaliaCan anyone recommend a top quality A4 writing pad (for fountain pen and other types of pen), which is bound sideways (i.e. glued along the left hand side)? White or cream colour. Ideally lined. I recently bought an A4 writing folder from Smythson. As nice as the product is, I just feel that the blue shaded paper it comes with isn't what I'm after. It is nice paper, but I don't like the fact that it has a Smythson front cover on it in blue (looks pretentious) and I'd rather have white/cream paper. Any recommendations? Frustratingly, it seems that most pads are top-bound (e.g. Crown Paper Mill). And Smythson appear to have changed to side-bound in the last year or two.
