A Labour of Love

There’s something rather pleasing about writing with a quill and ink. I’ve always been surprised how similar it is to using a fountain pen, especially using the beautiful nibbed quills in The Writing Room, which are made just up the road in Axminster.

As with any creative endeavour and with anything worthwhile, it takes a little practise and a bit of patience to get into the swing of writing the (very) old school way. But once you get into a flow, you’ll be surprised how beautiful your script can be!

We stock Goose, Pheasant and Peacock nibbed quills, with a wonderful range of coloured inks by J.Herbin, to try out your handwriting style. Available in store in Lyme Regis and online in our shop
