    Very nice. An international (translated) version would be very cool, as I'd love to read the articles.
    Also, I'm sure you'd find enough collaborators here and on other fori, if needed for future editions...

    Yep I think it's a good starting point. I know many fountain pen collectors that have many other passion as watches, photo equipment and more. I hope to fascinate many readers with these different articles without boring anyone. All suggestions and feedbacks are very appreciate

    If you ever need a topic, my fountain pen restoration and sketches has been featured on Pen World Magazine.
    I would love to see my sketches in an article written in Italian

    That's a good looking magazine. I liked the article on insular script - not a well known script and so very much worth a feature. Could you do Beneventan next time? :-)

    A nice mix of articles, including ink as well as pens, and some interesting pens that I didn't know before. I've just browsed through, but bookmarked your page to come back and read in more depth when I have time.

    You can see and read an article about Beneventana Script on the last issue of 2018 available on pag. 12 and pag.13

    Here the direct link: https://issuu.com/foolishmagazinebyp...i_online_issuu

    It's the only issue need of a registering because issuu flagged the cover as sensitive material but honestly it's a very beautiful cover and inside the magazine the article on how the cover was born can be read. Cover is made by Ermes Buttolo photographer and Maria Valentinuzzi calligrapher

    I just edited the last post removing the cover image of issue 2 of Foolish Magazine and I don't want to offend anyone with "sensitive" material
