New Noodler's: Bulletproof Bad Black Moccasin, Bad Blue Heron, Black Swan in Australian Roses, Dragons Napalm. Pens: Sheaffer Balance Aspen, Parker Sonnet Ambre Lacque

New inks! Pelikan's Edelstein in Topaz, Montegrappa in Bordeaux, Herbin's anniversary Rouge Hematite, and Visconti in turquoise.

Inkwell-ish bottles: Edelstein Topaz, J. Herbin anniversary, Iroshizuku Tsuki-yo, Caran d'Ache Caribbean Sea, Montegrappa Bordeaux, and Caran d'Ache Night Sky. Pens: Sonnet, Sheaffer, and a Preform, a Pelikan knockoff, new old stock.

The small black leather journal is a B&N Bombay, medieval binding, watermarked cream paper heavy enough and with a good tooth that takes fountain pen ink well. I took a wood rasp to the page edges. Result: not quite hand-torn, but softened. I think it's more appropriate to the soft cover than a square-cut block of pages. The purple cover had an unfortunate graphic in the cutout pane on the front cover. I glued in a greeting card someone handmade for me. Result: improved appearance and a way to keep an important memento.

The green cover with sun, river, and tree was the first hardbound blank book I bought for journal-keeping. I've never seen another like it, and I still love the design.

Some of my filled journals.
