If you’re anything like me, I like to carry a sheet of blotting paper with me whenever and wherever I’m using one of my fountain pens. Which, in practice, means it’s a constant carry. And a few months ago, Jon and Liz at the wondrous Wonder Pens began producing their own line of blotting sheets with some nice designs to make them a bit more interesting to carry, because, well, blotting paper. Doesn’t exactly thrill you to the core does it?
Each sheet’s about 10cm on the y axis by about 15cm on the x axis, depending I suppose on which way round you hold it. Ha! Take that my elementary school math’ teacher!
Remember, x from the left, y to the sky! And always label your axes!
Anyway, a pack of five sheets will cost you about five bucks Canadian before taxes and posting. And they come in the following designs…
And the pens: I recognized the Pilot Metropolitan and the Lamy, but what’s the top one? I don’t recognize the nib… it’s not a Platinum, a Sailor, or any Pilot I can remember. It’s bugging me, because it looks familiar but I just can’t place the pattern.
Each one comes with a quote…
But this kind of leaves me in a bit of a dilemma; I use my blotting paper, but I don’t want to get ink all over these so that I can’t read the quotes.
I might have to buy some more then.
