Today’s letter is going to my friend Tim, who lives here in Arkansas. He’d picked up on my letter writing project from the pictures I’d posted on Facebook, and this is the second letter I’ve sent his way. I’m ridiculously jealous of his handwriting, but mine has come leaps and bounds from where it was last year… which is kinda sad, but I like the way I write.
I took this picture to try and show off the shading on this beautiful J. Herbin Lie de Thé ink that I picked up at Goulet Pens, but it’s a bit difficult to capture with just a cell phone camera. I’d hoped to pick this ink up at my local retailer, Van Ness, but they were out so I decided to pick it up online because I’m a terribly impatient person, and I’d had a growing wishlist at Goulet anyways. The pen is a Pilot 78G with a bold nib that I picked up a while ago, but hadn’t inked up until now. Nice!
