Link Love: Analog Love and Miscellany

rp_link-ana1.jpgPosts of the Week:
Oh, my. There are those in the pen community that love vintage Esterbrook fountain pens. Esterbrook was my personal gateway into fountain pens so I have particularly warm feelings towards the vintage pens. However, a new manufacturer has picked up the name and started to sell new designs under the Esterbrook moniker and even using the same naming conventions but these new pens don’t look at all like their ancestors. If you haven’t heard about or seen the new Esterbrook pen line, these links should get you up to speed. They are pretty even-handed about the new Esterbrooks but there is certainly more divisive opinions available if you venture into any of the big pen forums.

Link Love: Virtual Letter Writing Social on Saturday!

Post of the Week:

Saturday, Dec 13, 2014 is the day chosen by the Letter Writers Alliance to be their holiday Virtual Letter Writing Social. All day, in whatever time zone, is the day to write your holiday cards and be your letter writing self. At 7pm CST, they will have a live video feed of the social from their offices in blustery Chicago. For more details, check out this post.

Paper Pastries has created the Letter Writing Kit which goes perfectly with the social.

I just received my Field Notes Colors Edition: Ambition and was looking forward to writing and photographing my own review until I saw these two. So, kudos to Josh and Andy for setting the bar REALLY high for reviewing the latest edition.

Link Love: Better Late Than Never

Link Love Link MascotSorry for the delay in this week’s Link Love. I came down with a nasty cold this week and missed a couple of prime blogging days as a result. I hope to get all caught up as soon as the NyQuil hangover wears off.

This week’s pen reviews run the gamut from office supply cabinet staples, ballpoints and some higher end fountain pens so there’s something for every price point.  Enjoy!
