Maker’s Mark Bourbon Barrel Calligraphy & Fountain Pen
Recently called the "comeback kid" of writing instruments the popularity of the fountain pen has seen a sharp rise in demand over the past few years. Before the fountain pen began to be widely used in the late 1800s, writing was mainly done at a desk with a steel nib pen that constantly had to be dipped into an inkwell. The fountain pen, which was designed to carry its own ink supply, brought greater convenience and portability to the writing process. Sales of fountain pens surged during World War I as soldiers purchased the pens to use in writing letters from the battlefields. Interest waned with the introduction of the roller ball pen but in the past few years writers and designers have returned to the elegance of script only produced by a a fountain pen.
