    Default Article: Writers have always loved mobile devices



    "Writing boxes had an effect a lot like that of today’s electronic devices: They created an aura around writing, investing tools with an energy and power that enabled writers to gain pleasure from writing—or from the idea of writing, which might be equally gratifying."

    That's an interesting article. Few things, for me, are more useful than the hardback notebook. With that and a fountain pen I can write whatever I need wherever I go.

    Very cool. I found this modern version on Amazon for $35 that would be good for fountain pen, brush or dip pen. For dip pens, you could glue some velcro to the right hand side and to the bottom of an ink well/bottle/vial. They also have a larger version from the same supplier. I'm thinking about getting one.

    Not bad, not bad at all
    0.5mm vs 0.7mm graphite sizes is much like 9mm vs 45acp...they both work if you know what you are doing. - me
