About the Author

Hi, my name is John. I’m a Colorado-born professional photographer who currently lives in Denver. 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.
