All politics aside, we think the world would be a much better place if we spent more time writing our thoughts and improving ourselves through deep introspection that journaling affords. The workshop produced this special firecracker red cover notebook with navy blue ink stamp & thread to commemorate our first exhibition at the DC Pen Show in August 2016.
Japanese Tomoe River paper is widely considered amongst fountain pen enthusiasts to be one of the most unique and best papers for handling a wide array of fountain pen inks. It is light and delicate, almost like tracing paper in its thinness. Yet, surprisingly, it can withstand the wetness and saturation of most fountain pen inks, while amplifying the shading and sheen characteristics that we ink lovers enjoy so much from our writing.
We put this Japanese paper into a hand-made, pocket-sized journals that are designed for ink testing and recording your pen & ink combinations. Each "Pocket Tomoe" InkJournal contains 60 pages of 52gsm white, plain Tomoe River paper.
To utilize the InkJournal format, we've included a card with each notebook that you can slip under the page to use as a template. Since the paper is ultra-thin, you will have no problem in following the format and applying it to your notebook. Switch between full-page ink & pen records on one side of the card and a list of all pens you have currently inked on the other side. Decorate and be creative with your ink-magination!
