There were lots of hard-to-categorize bits of wonderfulness on the pen-blogospere this week including the epic link list from the Pen Addict Podcast Gift Guide Episode (#81) which is a link list onto itself.
Letter Writing and Post:
Pardon my repeated turns to digital recently. As computers, cell phones and tablet devices are as much a part of our working life as pens, paper and staplers, I feel its worthwhile to include references occasionally.
It’s shown in just about every glamour shot of an office or desk but I’m not sure I ever pointed out where you could find the iconic Fliqlo screensaver. Its available for Macs (up to Mountain Lion) and for Windows and it’s free.

Paper and Notebooks:
This morning, Lifehacker featured a great post asking readers to contribute their favorite pencils in the comments and, boy howdy, are there some great pencils featured. Is your favorite pencil listed?
But, lo and behold, they had a related link for their Five Best Notebooks. While I don’t agree on all accounts, its a great follow-up to this morning’s post and gave me another notebook to add to the ever-growing grid: Whitelines.
I’m taking off for the Labor Day weekend but will be back, re-inked, freshly sharpened and opened to a clean page on Tuesday. In the meantime, enjoy the diverse collection of links this week and feel free to explore the archives! Happy Labor Day!
Paper and Notebooks:
- There’s been some big news around The Pen Addict and a soon-to-be-launched Kickstarter project under the name Nock Co.
- There’s rumors that following the success of the RETRAKT, Karas Kustoms might be making something fountain pennish. You didn’t hear it from me.
- Field Notes 18-month wall calendar is available and it won’t be long before the #20 in the Colors Editions will be announced. Find out more about Field Notes and its co-creator Jim Coudal on this week’s CMD+Space podcast.
