PREFACE

 
Yes, dear shopper.  You are in an unusual place.  If you're here because someone you care about loves pens and writing, they are by definition unique, curious, drawn to the exquisitely archaic.  Welcome to their world.  

The ritual begins when paper, a writing instrument, and medium (ink, graphite, etc) are brought together.  Each role is cast by the writer,  simultaneously director, actor, and audience of one.

The right pen.  The right paper.  The right medium.  The resulting collaboration, be it writing the first sentence in a new journal, the last sentence of a manifesto, or the morning to-do list,
every chance to write can be quietly rapturous.

So pen-lovers, we get you.
For those seeking gifts, if you don't understand, that's what we're here for.
To help describe each item we hope these color-codes will be useful:
Creative - green     Classic - Sky blue      Eclectic - purple     For the Collector - Wine
Items marked with an asterisk* are Papier Plume exclusives
Cleo Skribent* has been creating elegant, precise, and insightfully designed writing instruments, of which their Colour series* is a perfect example.

Tomoe River paper is legendary and rightly so.  But once you've tried it, you're spoiled for life.  Extremely thin and perfectly smooth, it somehow resists bleed-through and feathering.  This A4 100 sheet pad is perfect for writing or sketching.
