To Plugger Jay: The Desperate Penpal Experiment continues
To follow up on yesterday's post, here's the letter I wrote him in response. It is on an absolutely smashing International Girl Arabic birds aerogramme, about which I will kvell in further detail in a future post very soon.
If you want to read my letter to Jay, you can have a look at a larger view of the photo above, in which you'll hopefully be able to decipher my penwomanship.
Because the aerogramme included a space that commands "draw picture here," I gave a rare effort at a doodle, which came out pretty well, considering my skills in the visual arts:
For the fountain pen aficionados out there, the text of the letter and the envelope vampire are all done with Noodler's Eternal Hunter Green in a Sheaffer Agio F. The blood dripping from the fangs of the envelope vampire + the written caveat is Noodler's Tiananmen Red in a Hero 329 Fineline. I think the color representation is pretty accurate, if you're wondering about the inks.
