All About Famous Writers, Fountain Pens & Working Space

Recommended Posts


I would like to start sharing the writing place of Mrs. Virginia Woolf and some of her writings.








It seems that she writes with an OB nib. Does anyone know about her fountain pens?





This is from her writings when she used to study italian language...










Important webpage about her manuscripts: http://www.woolfonline.com/timepasses/?q=image/tid/8


Her writing desk... with nice views to the garden... It seems a very relaxing place...






Her bedroom: What an amazing bedroom !!






I suggest you to bring to this thread all the info that you have about any writer and his/her fountain pens, writings, etc...

Thanks a lot !!!

The uneven ink flow suggests she was using a dip pen.

They came as a boon, and a blessing to men,
The Pickwick, the Owl and the Waverley pen

Sincerely yours,

Virginia Woolf indeed used a dip pen, as did Shelby Foote in his series The Civil War: A Narrative of 1.2 million words.
