Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0789306816, Hardcover)

Transform your view of the handwritten word with this beautiful illustrated guide to the art of the fountain pen. In an intimate trim size perfect for giftgiving, Fountain Pens traces the history of the development of the pen from early reservoir systems to self-filling pens to modern reproductions. Lavishly illustrated, the book features more than one hundred four-color images, from lush photographic portraits of individual pens to rare vintage advertisements and original patent illustrations.

A celebration of the pen from quill to nib, Fountain Pens will be a valued addition to the libraries of collectors and enthusiasts alike.
