I have a subscription to the Smithsonian Magazine and I saw this ad that might be of interest to fans of the fountain pen. You can see them at http://www.smithsonianpens.com/. I also found a nice story in the August 3, 2009 Time magazine page 48. The article is called "I'm 26 years old and I Can't write cursive". Good reading. Next post, the Famous Rolling Ruler.
