Funiculì Funiculà

I am a fledgling designer with a borderline-obnoxious obsession with typefaces and proper grammar; a love of cheap earrings, baking, and the color green; and far too much time to kill on the intertubes.

Hot-rodded fountain pen. I am enthralled.

I never expected a pen demo to be sexy. Damn, now I want a fountain pen…

Completely mesmerizing. I wish I could
use a fountain pen more easily but they are harsh on a left-hander.

I love watching people write, I love close-ups of writing or drawing, I love beautiful pools of ink, I love the scratch of metal on paper. This video just hits all my buttons.

Oh my god I wish I could write like that.
