This was a super cute, fun book. It is like reading one long love letter to fountain pens.. I enjoyed hearing how the author discovered this kind of pen, types of pens and care of the pens. Then working through projects is amazing,

This book is a gem! if you like drawing and want to start simple and not buy a ton of art supplies, this is the book for you.

In the first section, the author breaks down fountain pens, how to hold one, how to make lines, what type of ink to get, etc. It's simple, clear and organized.

The second part if chock full of simple drawings: food, clothes, plants, trees and so much more. Ea

I loved this book as an introduction to fountain pens! I recently purchased a Lamy Safari pen and this book has lots of good advice on how to use and take care of your pens.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
