The May meeting was a fun one!  The topic was handwriting and Jim brought along a vintage handwriting analysis book (example above), and we all tested our handwriting to see if there were any shady characters amongst us.  Joel, and excellent artist and calligrapher in his own right, brought some fantastic correspondences that he has collected recently from pen pals all over the world.  The handwriting, and use of fountain pen and ink, is amazing.

Some of the PENS members handwriting samples ~

Frank bought this cool Bowling Desk Set – a Wahl product I believe – that he purchased at the Chicago Show.

Don’t forget the June Meeting (June 21) – the topic will be Unusual and Collectible Ballpoint Pens!

July 2011 Meeting Review

Our July meeting centered around Wahl Eversharp Pens.  Francis showed us two PowerPoint presentations on Wahl Eversharp, produced by Cliff Harrington, an expert and collector.  We learned the history of the Company and saw many examples of their pens from the early 1900s until their demise in the 50s.  After the presentation and narration by Francis, many members shared some Wahl Eversarp’s from their own collections ~
