In this issue

In this issue: After moving production from Russia to Armenia, BENU Pen is breaking all the rules as it challenges the conventions of the hand-painted fountain pen. Kevin Hsu of Taiwan's Penlux offers a luxurious writing experience at remarkably low prices through savvy engineering and supply-chain know-how. Giovanni Santini, owner of Santini Italia, might be an artisanal pen maker, but with new No. 8-sized nibs, he proves he is a giant of the industry. The new Lepidoptera series of fountain pen inks from family-run brand Anderillium display vivid colors and expertise in chemistry. For the first time in its history, New York City pen shop Fountain Pen Hospital is changing hands, from the Wiederlight family to The Pen Family. On the other coast, Los Angeles pen shop Flax Pen to Paper is also under ambitious new ownership. Explore the best that lettering artists have to offer with the Scranton Penmanship Collection of historical documents and a brand-new book from Master Penman Michael Sull. Plus, winners of the 29th annual PW Readers' Choice Awards: who got the Pennys?
