We’re back! Kicking off the new year with the start of a new series of interviews with fountain pen collectors (loosely defined). We’ll delve into their habits, the histories of their collections, try to work out if there is method to the madness. All in pursuit of an answer to the eternal question: Can users and collectors peacefully co-exist?
The first guest for the Collectors Series is Mr. Nicholas Gold. Keep an eye out for further interviews in the series as we head into the 2018.
