    Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll.jpeg

    From the album: Poems copied out by Mercian

    The Rev. Dodgson’s famous nonsense-verse ‘Jabberwocky’, copied out on to a piece of A4 paper from a narrow-ruled ‘RHINO’ pad. I bought the pad in 1997. The paper is uncoated. Its mass per m2 is not marked. The pen is my Pilot ‘Metropolitan’, with its ‘CM’ stubby nib. The ink is Pilot ‘Blue/Black’. I think that the pen’s feed would need to be slightly ‘wetter’ for me to get the best results from this nib. At the moment, the line that the nib is laying-down makes the ink appear to be a little bit pale. i.e. the feed is not feeding enough ink to the nib to give a fully-saturated line, and to fully-showcase the ink’s colour. The nib does glide smoothly over the paper, but IMO it would be better if it were wetter.

    Lewis Carroll and his violet ink

    From https://www.open.edu/openlearn/history-the-arts/culture/literature-and-creative-writing/literature/what-was-lewis-carroll (which is an excerpt from "The Story of Lewis Carroll" by Isa Bowman, which is freely available at Gutenberg.org: https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/35990 ), a curious reminiscence about Lewis Carroll and his letters. Here the detail about his ink choice (bolded below) was the item of particular note, but I include the larger passage for its amusing nature: I didn't find a scan of this particular letter, but I did find another letter of his written in "the dreadfully ugly violet ink": [from https://www.lib.umd.edu/alice150/beyond-the-books/featured-item-of-the-month/marmalade-letter ]
  3. Organics Studio was a small producer out of Maryland. Some of their inks were awesome. This is one of them. They have fallen into the category of unobtanium.
