  1. Sooo, I'm actually supposed to be reading King Lear right now... But I'm in too light a mood for the storm soliloquy at the moment, and quickly got sidetracked with deciding which ink to put in my freshly-washed pen to take notes with. I started thinking about which colour in my collection could be best associated with Cordelia's character, specifically because she can be interpreted in so many ways (partly depending on which text you're perusing), from saintly to a sovereign waging war against her own family. A complex character would require a complex ink, I think, and the new pastel Sailor Studio or Vinta inks with many colour shifts, sheen and shading seem quite fitting for that description. I went through some of my favourite characters this way, and, funny enough, most of the villains and romantic heroes (specifically Lady Macbeth and Juliet) got associated with a red colour (specifically KWZ Maroon, my absolute favourite red)! Indeed the colour of passion, which can be manifold. As an exercise of fun speculation to distract you from the upcoming hump day, what do you think? Dominique
  2. Hi everyone, (By the way, I'm fairly new to pen collecting, so I apologize if I say something stupid). My brother wants to buy me a special pen. After a lot of consideration and procrastination, (I think) I have decided on the Montblanc Writers Edition Shakespeare pen. It's a beautiful pen, and given that it commemorates Shakespeare, I don't think it will ever go out of style (of course, it's a gift from my brother, not an investment -- I'm not really expecting to part with it in my lifetime). When I was first looking, I could buy the fountain pen (Fine nib) for around $950 (USD) from the store. Now, I'm led to believe that they are unavailable in stores, and the prices on Amazon appear astronomical (hundreds of dollars more). Did the price really just go up that much? Am I looking in the right place? Is there any chance I could buy it from the store still? If it's really impossible to buy the Shakespeare, I was thinking about the Beatles pen, which appears to still be available in Montblanc stores. Is it available only because it's not popular? Is there something wrong with it? Thank you!
  3. We are thrilled to announce that we have just restocked our supply of Montblanc William Shakespeare Velvet Red Ink! This ink is a beautiful shader. It's a mature and romantic red with some moody burgundy undertones. It will looks supurb in medium to flex nibs and puts down a delightful bright red line with extra-fine and fine points. Montblanc William Shakespeare Velvet Red is available on our website and at our Maryland locations at this time. http://www.penboutique.com/montblanc-writers-edition-william-shakespeare-velvet-red-ink-bottle.html Best, The Pen Boutique Team http://i.imgur.com/2vkdFiY.jpg http://i.imgur.com/T7uVqPY.jpg http://i.imgur.com/rf9xXnW.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/ISvpPoc.jpg
  4. Hi everyone, I'm a fairly new and definitely inexperienced collector (and I'm 21-years-old). I've loved pens for several years, but I don't have a lot of money to spend on pens. However, something amazing happened: long story short, my brother (not a pen collector) wants to give me ~$1,000 to buy the pen of my dreams. This isn't a minor decision for me -- this pen will become, by far, the most expensive thing I own. The problem? I had no clue I'd ever have this much money to spend on a pen. And so I really don't know what to get. My brother and I went to the MB store and we looked at the new Shakespeare WE. It was very nice, and I have a good connection with Shakespeare's work. I went home and looked at the Fitzgerald WE online bc I love the Great Gatsby. It's tough to tell without actually seeing the pen, but it looks a bit less aesthetically appealing than the Shakespeare (also, I don't know much of anything about the symbolism other than the Art Deco design). Anyways, I have a few questions: 1. Can you suggest any pens in the ~1,000 price range? 2. I've read a bit about the Fitzgerald WE online. Does anyone have any reviews? I tend to like a heavy pen that's just a little bit thicker than the Meiserstuck. 3. What is a good price range to pay for the Fitzgerald WE? I'm assuming the best way to buy the Shakespeare is full retail through the MB store? It's not like I'm looking to sell this pen (no matter what it is, it will have a lot of sentimental value coming from my brother), but I don't want to get ripped off or buy at the top of the market.
  5. We just received in our first batch of Montblanc Shakespeare Red Velvet 35ml ink bottles. It's truly stunning and I've been using it all morning for my notes (perks of working at a pen store!). Feel free to place an order here or to give us a call at 410-992-3272. Check out swatches of this ink. Best, Rachel Pen Boutique
