Fountain Pens for the Million
Although the original hardback version of Steve's definitive history of Conway Stewart has been sold out for some time, demand has still been high. Accordingly, we are about to launch two new versions of this title - a paperback and (a first for English Pen Books) an ebook. Please note, the content of these books will be exactly the same as the original hardback. Both versions will be available for purchase by the end of August, and full details will be added to the website shortly.

We were saddened to hear that Henry Simpole passed away peacefully at his home on Friday, June 12th after enduring a long period of ill-health. Henry was a good friend of ours for many years. Although he will no doubt be best remembered for the beautiful gold and silver overlaid pens he produced, he was also an experienced pen repairer and dealer who will have been visited by many over the years at his stall in Portobello Road. His kindness and his talents will be greatly missed. RIP Henry.
