This is a seductive thread. This is my latest bargain - a Stipula Suprema with a beautiful unornamented steel nib. It seems to be very nice to write with as well.

Pretty nib, beauty in simplicity. Also, look at that frost -- brrrr! Very nice!

 

SOOC (or Straight Out Of Camera) is a term I learned from other photographers in flickr. I don't know how long it's been in use, but it's handy for "no post-processing" (except for re-sizing and tagging, of course).

 

 

Your picture makes me miss New England a little bit. *Sigh.*

My longed for Pilot Bamboo arrived today and I couldn't resist a snapshot of its special nib. I love the contrast matte/glossy.

From a nurse set. Unfortunately the "light scratches" looks worse in my photo than they do in person:

Fantastic photos in this thread--I'm very impressed!

 

I could really see a "nib only" photo gallery in a museum somewhere. Just beautiful.

 

(now I have to see about taking some nib photos and contribute as well, primitive though they may end up being)

That Ventidue nib is gorgeous. I love Stipula's 1.1mm italics!

 

They are truly great!

Your exhibition idea is a real good one. It could be made into something really interesting.
