dotted paper

Got a notebook from Goulet with dotted Tomoé River paper. I’ve never used that before. Thought perhaps it would be good for practicing/improving my handwriting. After all … that was one of the basic ideas I had when all this fountain pen stuff started. I just wanted to get a decent handwriting for ‘daily use’ — I had [have] no plans on starting Spencerian script.

Tonight I tried my new, dotted notebook for the first time. Wrote a quote I read somewhere long time ago. It probably saved my life at the time.

This is written with my fine nibbed Waterman Hemisphere with Visconti blue ink. Can’t say I liked the experience. The dots are too pronounced for my taste. I think they should have been more sublte.

This, new Waterman pen quickly became a favourite! It’s my best writing exprience after the Sonnet! It’s smooth, not overly wet. It just works — never skips a stroke, and that was right out of the box. Its full name is Waterman Hemisphere, Blue Obsession 🙂
