50 Years of the Dinkie - 1922 to 1972


50 Years of the Dinkie is due to be published in 2018, and a preview page has been added to the website. One of the sections of the book will be a complete listing (with colour swatches) of all the known casein patterns from the Dinkie range. It was always the intention to  make these tables available online to allow collectors free access, and to allow for future updates if any other casein materials emerge. These tables have now been added here  Dinkie Colours

50 Years of the Dinkie - 1922 to 1972


Work on Andy's history of the Conway Stewart Dinkie is proceeding well. The basic format has been decided (A4 landscape), and the first 40 or so pages have now been provisionally completed, covering the years up to 1932. Small pens from other manufacturers in the years before the Dinkie, and the various Dinkie look-alikes of the 1920s, are also discussed in some detail. The pages completed so far already carry nearly 150 images of pens (all full size) and 50 sets (shown at half size). 


Please contact andy@englishpenbooks.co.uk if you have any queries about this book.

UK Pen Shows in 2017


Steve had a table at the Western Pen Show held in Bristol on February 5th. The Show was
very well attended with a record number of both dealers and visitors and, as usual, there
was interest in all Steve's books. He is unable to attend the Northern Pen Show at Lytham
St Annes on April 2nd, but James Boddy and his colleagues at the Onoto Pen Co will have
stock of the Onoto Book for sale. However, Steve will have a table at the Eastern Pen
Show in Cambridge on May 14th (note the change of date this year), where he will be
looking forward to meeting old and new friends. He will of course have stocks of all his
books for sale, along with a few pens.
