Colour: Peter Moss
description

Tucked away from the busy streets of Piccadilly Circus, lives a quiet bookshop that houses an enchanting collection of rare and fine prints. These literary treasures are kept safe in this quaint, yet architecturally detailed shop, with each hand-carved telling it’s own version of the same beautiful story. We then enter the shop and become enamoured by the collection of curiosities that bring every shelf to life. Finally, we find a single book amongst this sea of treasures, only to get lost again in its textures, gold foiling, and illustrated details.

Enamoured by its antiquity, we’ve created this series to inspire you to write your own everlasting story with The Bookshoppe Collection of fountain pen inks.

Once Upon a Design

The round shape of a ball reminds of us of life's most joyful moments, like a toddler at play, big scoops of ice cream, ornaments during the Holidays — pure moments of bliss and innocence. Our circular ink bottle reminds us that ideas and creativity are always continuous and ever-flowing, keeping us young at heart.

Capped by a hexagonal brass nut, this shape and material is a reflection of our history in print and hand-craftsmanship. By curating a palette of stunning colours we add a distinctive flair to any writing and create joy in places you never expected. A world of imagination is within your grasp and we are here to inspire you to write, reflect, and dream everyday.

The latest Ferris Wheel Press fountain pen ink series takes us on a journey all the way to the acclaimed Piccadilly Circus region in London. This bustling hub and commercial district boasts an expansive thoroughfare and is part of the core of the city centre. The phrase “it's like Piccadilly Circus,” is commonly used in the UK to refer to a place or situation which is extremely busy with people. It has been said that a person who stays long enough at Piccadilly Circus will eventually bump into everyone they know.

Within the bustling district on an offshoot street, lives a bookshop that could be easily missed. For those paying attention, they will discover this quiet gem which houses a collection of rare and fine prints. All of the treasures and untold stories found here became the inspiration for The Bookshoppe Collection, our newest series of fountain pen inks arriving in the fall and winter of 2021.

In this collection, we start by appreciating the architectural charm of a vintage bookshop as we peruse the streetscape. We then enter the shop and become enamoured by the collection of curiosities that bring every shelf to life. Finally, we pick up a single book from the shelf to appreciate the craftsmanship of antique bookbinding.
