The thought of the day is inspired by one of the legends in low cost, affordable architecture in India. Apart from low-cost architecture, he was the pioneer exposed brick facade, brick jaalis, and maximization of light and ventilation. He was British born Indian Architect, Laurie Baker.
The pen in use today is a special pen with the special nib. It is Kanwrite Desire with Architect Nib. The ink used is Lamy Turquoise.
The nib on this is fabulous. Got hold of this from Mr. Awasthi of Kanwrite at this years’ Pelikan Hub.
Today’s thought is by Ovid. He was Roman Poet who lived in the period of Augustusand his actual name was Publius Ovidius Naso. He was ranked as one of the three canonical poets of Latin literature. Ovid talks more about his own life than most other Roman poets.
The pen in use is Ranga Model 3C which I got from the Group Buy. The pen is fitted with JoWo 1.1 Dual tone nib and is inked with Diamine Eclipse.
I really love ebonite as the material for the pen and this white blue swirl is something amazing. You have to hold in the hand to actually see and feel the beauty of the material.
