It’s been a VERY long time since I’ve posted anything.
As some of you know, I have been ill. I have been focused to getting better rather than blogging. I am glad to say that I am doing much much better now, and I hope to be back to blogging within the week.
Yesterday Quo Vadis Blog announced that they would be introducing a change to the Quo Vadis Habana.
At this time, the Quo Vadis Habana comes with a leatherlette cover (not unlike the Rhodia Webnotebook) and with 90 g bright white paper. In 2011, the paper in the Habana will be changed to a 85 g ivory paper. Personally, I think this is a bad move from the company that usually gets it right. What do you think?
“In 2011, we’ll be switching our Habana notebooks over to the same paper as Quo Vadis France. The ones we sell in North America will still be made in the US, but they’ll now contain ivory colored paper that’s 85g in both small and large (and lined and unlined) versions.
The decision was made in the interests of international standardization.”

I really wish I could draw, but alas I cannot.
I’d really like to have a drawing of a fountain pen (personified) that appears to be dizzy.
I’m thinking the pen is at an angle with star and dizzy lines (maybe birds) swirling around its head. Maybe even with its eyes crossed or something like that.
I know it sounds silly, but it’d be really nice. If you want payment we might be able to work something out…
Can anyone help with this? If you can please reply here or send an email to dizzypen at gmail dot com.
Thanks a lot!
I’m thinking something along these lines:

I don’t normally do this, but I’ve had several requests for my preliminary thoughts on this pen. These are my initial impressions. A more thorough review is a few weeks out. I generally like to live with a pen for a good while before drawing my conclusions. I will say that I am impressed by the TWSBI Diamond 530 in spite of a couple issues. NOTE: TWSBI has informed the pen owners of an issue with the piston seal. If your TWSBI is leaking at the piston seal please email Speedy about getting a replacement part.

For some reason I wrote Mont Blanc 149. I meant to write Mont Blanc 146. The 149 is HUGE. The TWSBI is not nearly as big. Sorry.
