As usual, we will bring along a wide selection of items from our catalogue. However, to avoid disappointment please let us know by e-mail if there is something in particular you would like us to bring.



We have added lots of new and exciting products over the last few days and weeks with more to come!

Faber Castell Loom is a great addition to the Design range and superb value for money.

The Sailor Lecoule is an entry level fountain pen, available in a range of translucent colours with a pearl-effect barrel and stainless steel nib (size medium-fine only).

Visconti have added the "Portrait in Blue" to their very popular van Gogh range

We now have the Pilot Capless Limited Edition 2012 fountain pen, which is a lovely marble effect this year. These special pens come in a marble effect gift box with magnetic closure.

Last and by no means least, we now have Aurora bottles ink and cartridges back in stock. I know many of you have been waiting for this ink to be available again in the UK so we have made sure we have plenty in stock.



In just a few days' time we will have the new Lamy 2000 M - an all stainless steel version of this classic design. Also, Lamy is making the red Studio available in Europe and we will also be stocking this model.

Our first delivery of pens from the US-based Edison Pen Company has just cleared through Customs and is on its way to us. We have the pages up already and the pens will be available for purchase as soon as our package is delivered. We can take a look at them on the website.

A new 1670 Anniversary ink "Ocean Blue" will be available very soon so we will be stocking this as well as a special version of Bleu Myosotis in a heart-shaped bottle.
