Fountainhead ~ A Pen, Ink & Paper Exhibit

7th & 8th October 2018

Fountain pens, inks and papers belonging to our FPAI members will be exhibited on these two days. More than 500 fountain pens from across the world will be on display. These range from vintage European and American pens to certain iconic models to modern Japanese Urushi pens to Custom-made one-offs. The exhibition will have multiple display themes including pens grouped from the geographical location of their make, grouped based on the filling systems and grouped based on specialty nibs. There will be an independent section on Indian Fountain Pens over the years as well.
Additionally a good number of inks and a few papers will also be put up on display.
