Fountain Pens and teNeues Publishing Eco Booklets

I bought these Cartolina Eco Booklets because I just loved the covers. They were $5 for the set of three and there is one blank booklet, one with lined paper, and one with graph paper.

Dave the Minion and his pal Cerberus were quite interested in these designs by Fiona Richards. You can see how excited Cerberus was.

When I bought them I thought I’d probably have to use ballpoint pen in them rather than fountain pens. However, I did some tests and the paper seems to work well with fountain pens. I got a tiny spot of bleed-through when using my very wet Parker 51 pen but the others were fine, even with dark ink.

I love the Rohrer & Klingner Verdigris colour, but I didn’t have enough money to buy it. I did buy a bottle of the Noodler’s Blue Upon the Plains of Abraham, which Wonder Pens in Toronto is selling exclusively, and I really like it. I did up a sketch with it and it’s a bulletproof ink so I can use watercolour with it as well. I love the Noodler’s Lexington Gray for drawing, and with this added colour I can use blue for sketches as well. They both work well with my Lamy Safari pen.

      Aren’t they great? They don’t seem to have them down your way Karen. Perhaps they are just too expensive to ship to Aus.? That,s a shame as I was quite impressed with the paper.
