- Here's a short article with some great photos of The Regional Assembly of Text in Vancouver, BC. For several years we tried to get our local gift/stationery store to host similar letter writing events, but to no avail. That's part of the reason we had to start our own letter writing club a couple years ago but someday I'd still like to visit this store on one of their letter writing nights.
- This letter written by Alexander Graham Bell's fiance/wife makes me want to read more of her letters and learn more about her. Unfortunately, the only book I've found so far (The Wife of a Genius: Mrs. Alexander Graham Bell) is out of print. Guess I'll have to keep an eye out for it whenever I visit used bookstores.
- The Well Appointed Desk has posted a tutorial of how to replace the ink sac of old fountain pens. I have an old Esterbrook that needs a new ink sac so I'm toying with the idea of replacing it myself, if I can get up the courage. ;-)
- I found this article linked from the blog "Songs in the Key of Ink" about a man who copied the whole King James version of the Bible by hand! I know copy work is a good way to learn the language, how to write and (usually) improve one's penmanship and that lots of homeschoolers but I've never heard of anyone copying this much in this day and age. And it only took him four years.
