Because just like paper and its amazing history, pens and the tools we write with have a history all their own just as fascinating!

And just like paper, the writing utensils we have used down through the ages have been tremendously varied. Everything from reeds to quills to fountain pens, brushes and styluses have been used. And now in our modern age, we can be found using keyboards and computers most often 🙂




Nothing can beat a good ballpoint pen in a pinch though! Some day I would like learn how to write with a quill pen. What is your favorite writing tool?
