About Fountain Pen Love

Fountain Pen Love is dedicated to people who love using, collecting and learning about fountain pens. Whether you’re a beginner who just picked up a fountain pen for the first time or someone who has been using fountain pens for years and is looking for something different, you’re covered.

I’m in no way a fountain pen expert, so you’ll be learning with me. While I do know quite a bit about older pens and inks, I’ve somewhat ignored modern pens and inks. With this site, I intend to change that. You’ll get to experience my true impressions of many of today’s most popular pens and inks, as well as plenty of vintage fountain pens and inks.

About the Author

Hi, my name is John. I’m a Colorado-born professional photographer who currently lives in San Francisco. I’ve been using and collecting fountain pens for over 20 years. I got my first one in college when I got bored taking notes with ballpoints and pencils. Since then I’ve bought and sold hundreds of pens, but have consistency in my love of Esterbrooks.

I also collect vintage fountain pen inks and ink bottles. My current collection includes inks ranging from the late 1800s to the 1960s. Years back, I even wrote a book about vintage inks! On any given day, you’ll find at least one of my pens filled up with an ink that’s more than 70 years old.
