Hello From Catalonia!



Recommended Posts

Hi!!!

 

My name is Anna and I live in Salt, Catalonia. I am a bookbinder and I am here because you have a lot of information on paper, and that interests me. I also enjoy your bookbinding/journal posts and I hope to show my work here too :).

 

Nice to meet you all!!

Welcome, Anna !

 

There is some interest here, for journals that are "liquid-ink friendly".

Do you regularly use a fountain pen ? I look forward to reading yoiur experiences.

Hello and welcome, Anna. I'm glad you joined us. Bookbinding interests me, perhaps because I know almost nothing about how it is actually done. I do love books. Bookbinders also interest me, again, perhaps because I don't actually know one and because they possess an amazing skill.

 

Please make yourself right at home and don't hesitate to share your questions and opinions. I hope you enjoy your time with us.

Thank you for the welcoming. Yes, I actually have a Sheaffer that my fiancé gave me an a Inoxcrom. It was him who suggested I checked this website, since he really likes fountain pens. About the journals that are "liquid-ink friendly", I am looking for a paper to use in my journals that is fountain pen friendly. Tomorrow I am going to Barcelona to check that. I will share the results with you :).

Hi Anna and welcome to FPN.

 

Nice Avatar....

 

 

Yes, the problem with journals is often that the paper is too loose, sucks in the ink too much, producing feathering and bleeding. You would need a heavier paper, say 90 or 100 gms.

 

If you go testing, don't forget to take your pens..... And a bottle of ink with some Q-tips for doing ink-swaths.

 

 

Enjoy the forum

Greetings from México Anita. I sincerily hope Inoxcrom is still working in Barcelona.

 

I lived more than a year in México, and I am going to go soon, probably on August :). I don't know about Inoxcrom, sorry :huh:

Actually, I have been testing. I already posted my first paper review and I am about to post another one this afternoon. I want to use a good paper in my work ;).

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
    • Arkanabar
      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
