Description

  




"This book hopes to capture the famous names which were once synonymous with fountain pens and which parents and grandparents of this generation will remember fondly.

In the golden age of the industry pens were perceived as being 'for life'; carefully looked after by their owner, unlike today's throwaways and biros. Indeed the advent of the ballpoint signaled the decline of the industry in Britain. This book will hopefully show what was lost and what is actually being regained in recent times, as the resurgence of interest in the fountain pen continues. "
