Valentine’s Day 2015 with the LPC

We were reminded that we adopted a Red and White theme last year for the Olympics; so why not a Pink, Red and White theme (pink, red or white coloured pens, inks, and whatever else in your collection that qualifies) in honour of St. Valentine ?  After all, it will be another 11 years (that’s 2026!) before Valentine’s Day falls on Saturday again (but who is counting)!!

As always, thanks go to our official club photographer, Rick!!

Another great turnout for February 14, 2015, in spite of the snow, wind and bitter cold!

Who would have guessed at the variety of pens in pink, red and white – quite surprising really!

And the inks as well!

Who knew that G. Lalo made ink – and that’s quite a bottle!

Let’s check out a couple of labelled scans of all that red and reddish inks:

Quite a variety indeed!

Maybe some day we will have the technology whereby you can touch the screen and smell the De Atramentis Lotus (scented) ink!
Now, let’s check out the pens – some Esterbrooks, a Parker Duofold, and a couple of Sheaffers;

    1. Thank you for your question! My apologies, I identified the ink as G. Lalo; however, the ink is actually made by J. Herbin. They call it their “Marie-Antoinette ink” and as you can see consists of a beautiful glass “chest” bottle filled with 100ml of Cyclamen pink ink. Not surprisingly, it is a bit on the expensive side, selling for $47 here at Stylo.ca.
      I hope that answers your question.
      Cheers!
      Mike
