Looking for something special? This stunning leather notebook cover from Archie's Calligraphy is pure luxury! Handmade in Poland, this is a really striking notebook cover crafted from Italian high-grade soft and supple leather with a textile lining that has the appearance of chamois and as it is B5 sized it can be used with a range of inserts. Stylish, traditional and utterly beautiful, this is a real statement piece that will remain with you for years!
The notebook contains 120 B5 sheets (240 pages) of 100g paper, ideal for writing with fountain or calligraphy pens and utilises the same paper as used in Archie's Calligraphy pads. The paper works well with most available inks and there is no feathering or bleeding, and see-through is minimal so it is possible to write on both sides of the page.
The notebook is printed with a delicate light brown dot grid but with slightly larger dots every 1cm, and every 1/3cm smaller dots are printed. This allows you to use the notebook both for everyday writing with a fountain pen and for most calligraphy styles (eg Italic or Copperplate) for which the division of the row into 3 is more natural than in 2. In addition, it will certainly meet with the approval of people whose handwriting is smaller than 5 mm! Four page markers are attached.
Available in a choice of 6 colours - divine!

The name "iroshizuku" is a combination of the Japanese words "iro" (colouring) expressing high standards and variation of colours, and "shizuku" (droplet), which embodies the very image of dripping water.
Each ink name derives from the expressions of beautiful Japanese natural landscapes and plants, all of which contribute to the depth of each individual hue. Enjoy Japan's rich and subtle colour aesthetic as you write.
Pilot has always manufactured its own inks, renowned throughout the world and guaranteeing fine quality to the tip of your pen!
We have been big fans of Ferris Wheel Press since we began stocking their products in 2019. Ferris Wheel Press pieces make excellent gifts not just because they are wonderful products but because every detail is considered from the product itself to the packaging.
The brand states that Ink deserves to be inspiring from the moment you receive it, to when you draw it into your pen, it should remind you of the magic of writing.
The Ferris Wheel Press Ink Charger Set contains three 5ml vials of ink that can be carried with you on your travels which of course can be re-used with your favourite inks when empty. The Original Trio Palette contains colours Bluegrass Velvet, Candy Marsala and Tanzanite Sky. Other sets are available with different ink colour combinations so you can find the set to perfectly represent the personality of the recipient of this gift.
What is better than beautiful inks? Beautiful scented inks! These exquisitely charming inks, lightly scented and presented as a set of 5 elegant 10ml bottles, are perfect for fountain pens since they are naturally scented and do not contain pigments.Herbin scented inks are made from floral water (hydrosols) of rose, orange, lavender, cocoa, apple and violets. The hydrosols used by J. Herbin come from Grasse, France, a Provencal town long associated with the perfume industry, and famous for its floral scents.
Fashioned with great care, scented inks are inspired by a tradition that began in Italy in the 19th century. J. Herbin and other manufacturers used to collect different scents from the perfume industry and add them to their inks.
Known as “Les Subtiles” (The Subtle), each ink matches fragrance and color:
Blue ink - Lavender scented
Brown ink - Cocoa scented
Red ink - Rose scented
Purple ink - Violet scented
Amber ink - Orange scented
This set would make for a delightful gift to please all the senses and bring joy back to writing!
Another wonderful gift from J Herbin, the calligraphy ink set. A set of four different coloured calligraphy inks in 10ml bottles, this ink contains natural resins allowing the ink to adhere to the metal nib, but flow smoothly and consistently. Perfect for all aspects of calligraphy and artistic work but not recommended for use in fountain pens. The popularity of calligraphy has risen during 2020 so this is a great present for anyone who has recently picked up the skill or long term lovers of the art form.
Colours included in this set: Black, Blue, Red and White.
We couldn't complete the ink section of our 2020 gift guide without including the stunning Edelstein ink of the year - moonstone. The Edelstein Ink Collection is manufactured using a special ingredient that ensures extra smooth writing and care for the fountain pen.
The German word Edelstein translates as gemstone, and each colour corresponds to the beautiful colouring of a gem. Every 50ml glass bottle is unique. The rich weight and soft curves make it a pleasure to hold in your hands. Moonstone is a warm silvery grey with complex undertones of yellow which create a beautiful and understated ink which is a pleasure to write with. The bottle looks striking on display and makes for a thoughtful gift for anyone who enjoys writing with ink.

Having recently posted an article about the charming Høvel pencil plane, we couldn't not include it in our gift guide! This pencil sharpener functions as a miniature plane, allowing you the freedom to achieve any point you like without the hassle of breaking the lead of your pencils like a typical sharpener sometimes does. It can be used as a long point sharpener, a flat sharpener, similar to the result you would achieve with a chisel or knife, or even for making very short and sturdy points.
The blades are easily changed without the need for any tools by using the thumb screw that fastens everything together. The solid brass Høvel weighs in at around 90 grams and has a great weighted feel in the hand. Being a precision machined brass piece, Høvel will age beautifully and is made to last a lifetime. The Høvel comes with 10 replacement blades in the box.
An optional wooden base is perfect for your desk and collects the shavings as you sharpen. Or, if you are on the go you can bring your Høvel along safely stored in one of the purpose made leather sheaths. This item is the epitome of style and substance with perfection engineering and incredible style.
I had to include these wonderful little stocking fillers! The Cube by e+m is a delightful dice-like sharpener which will sharpen leads of 5.6mm in diameter. Available in a choice of wood finishes. Simple and elegant!

Before the invention of the pencil, medieval scholars would use a silver tip to draw fine lines. This is the idea behind a collection of useful, contemporary writing instruments from Axel Weinbrecht Design in Germany. The pens will last a lifetime and can be used on every paper surface and will rarely if ever need sharpening. There is no ink so it can't dry up or leak and consequently these pens are unaffected by extremes of temperature or climatic conditions.
This pen has a soft alloy tip that will leave a written line on paper and other surfaces. The tip can be sharpened by using fine sandpaper but it is unlikely you will need to sharpen it often. At 163mm long, this is the same size as many everyday pens but lasts forever! Stunningly designed, this is sure to be a well received gift.

The Esterbrook Estie fountain pen is a tribute to the brand and its storied history. The ͞Estie provides a feeling of 1930s nostalgia, a time when phrases like dingy, dizzy, doggy and brodie were commonplace and when fountain pens were an integral part of life and communication for most Americans.
The Estie Sparkle features a comfortable well-balanced barrel produced from blended acrylic that is finished with a high polish and features Diamondcast, a process whereby the acrylic is created with real gem-quality diamonds that are ethically sourced as reclaimed chips direct from diamond cutters.

The pen is fitted with a German manufactured Jowo #6 nib and is available in sizes Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad and 1.1 Stub but can also be used with vintage Esterbrook nibs by purchasing the Esterbrook Nib Connector.

Each Ferris Wheel Press Brush Fountain Pen is handmade from copper, brass, and stainless steel for a well balanced yet substantial writing experience. Each intricate detail of the grip is engraved to enhance the tactility and feedback of a design that is bold as brass.
The Brush Fountain Pen takes its namesake and familiarity from the contoured silhouette of an artist's paintbrush. This shape was designed for good balance in-hand, while remaining comfortable over a long period of time. These characteristics are valued by every modern day writer or illustrator wanting to use inspiring tools that function as well as they look.
Drawing parallels to the ferrule, traditionally a metal section that holds the bristles of a brush, the grip section of the Brush fountain pen plays the important role of securing the nib. The spirited etchings on the grip are inspired by the mechanical components of vintage printmaking studio equipment including the flywheel of a 1912 Pearl letterpress and a fully functional Underwood typewriter – the 'original' modern method of typesetting. The fanning geometric lines are analogous to the type hammers of a typewriter, each carrying its own miniature metal type block, waiting to be activated. Similar to the way in which the carriages of a ferris wheel support its riders, the cylindrical carriage of a typewriter transports its paper in a horizontal and circular fashion.
- Full copper body.
- Brass grip with CNC etching.
- Brass nut on cap.
- Total length: 143mm.
- Cap length: 57mm.
- Grip length: 24mm.
- Total weight: 23g.
- Nib: Stainless Steel in Medium or Fine.
Please note this pen has been designed and balanced to write with the cap un-posted. Do not post the cap onto the pen when writing as the threads of the cap can damage the pen finish.
