Came across this article in BBC News. It’s been interesting to find out that fountain pens are still used in schools in, for example, Germany. Other countries too, I’ve learnt during my short ‘journey’.
Learnt from a German, fellow blogger, that kids use the Lamy brand there. I found this interesting since never during my time in school did I come in contact with fountain pens. We used pencils when I started out 1962, and eventually graduated to ballpoint pens. The only one in my surroundings I ever saw using a fountain pen was my mother, and that was rare. She only brought it out on special occasions.
