Pen Test Book

Stephanie

Gentian Osman is one of our favorite calligraphy artists from the blog Drawing with a Squirrel where she can often be found creating the most amazing ink and watercolor art. In this image, Gentian is using the last page of a Rhodia Unlimited pocket book to test a few Hi Tec C Coleto pens.

I myself have kept specific journals to test different kinds of fountain pen inks, and in my various journeys to find the perfect journal have often sacrificed a page or two to see how my different pens would write on any given type of paper. Our friend Brad over at The Pen Addict tests a new pen or pencil almost daily on his blog and makes me feel like I am not alone in this world of wanting to find the ultimate pen/paper/ink writing combo.

Do you like to test different pens/pencils? Do you have one book or tablet where you keep the tests for reference?

  1. I generally test pens and inks in the back pages of whatever notebook I’m carrying, but I’m thinking of making a dedicated ink test book as well. Haven’t picked a book for that purpose yet, but it will have to be white paper.
