Very interesting book. Clearly the author is obsessed with ink and fountained pens. Good for him. I was also brought up having to learn to write with a brush with ink prepared from grinding ink sticks in an inkstone with water. Never suspected all this history behind it until reading it 60 years later in this book. I am not sure that I appreciate the difference, as Professor Bishop has described in his book, between writing long hand using an instrument on paper or typing it out on a keyboard. I seem to think the latter is more economical and perhaps more egalitarian?
An excellent history of ink, and how it has influenced ours, as well as other societies throughout history. This book has given me a new outlook on writing, and now I'm really looking forward to getting back to writing in long-hand rather than using a keyboard.
