Happy Handwriting Day!

Post Comment


Every year on January 23, the Writing Instrument Manufacturers Association (WIMA) sponsors National Handwriting Day to honor “the sincerity and individualism expressed through the handwritten word.”

Over at Orange Crate Art, our friend Michael Leddy is celebrating with a series of thoughts and reminiscences about 5 different pens, plotting his progression from a Parker T-Ball Jotter to the Pelikan he uses now.

I’m going to continue playing with the glass pen and beautiful J. Herbin inks that Karen so graciously sent me.

What are you doing to celebrate?

  1. Thanks for the recommendation, Beth — the Waterman Phileas looks like a very good starter choice. Karen has also promised to take me to the Art Brown pen show this spring. I can’t wait!

  2. I’m opening the lovely Visconti Opera with a broad nib in a forest green color that is a limited availability color.

    Let me recommend a Waterman Phileas in the nib size of your choice when you get ready to upgrade from the glass pen. They’re lovely starter pens that write like much more expensive pens and come with cartridge converters so you can fill them with those lovely Herbin inks.
