Long Island Pen Show 2017

Once again the writing instrument community celebrated the rites of Spring by gathering for the Long Island Pen Show held at Hofstra University’s Student Center on April 1st and 2nd.
And once again it was a pleasure to see just about every pen ever made and the good souls who make them, collect them, repair them, sell them and let’s not forget those who buy them. Pens are a fascinating manifestation of human ingenuity and and dedication to the pleasures of handwriting. And the people are even more interesting than the pens.
