The Magic of Ink


Photobucket

About 1,600 years ago, a popular ink recipe was created. The recipe was used for centuries.
The reservoir pen, which may have been the first fountain pen, dates back to 953, when Ma'ād al-Mu'izz,
the caliph of Egypt, demanded a pen that would not stain his hands or clothes, and was provided with
a pen that held ink in a reservoir. The two most used black writing inks in history are carbon inks and iron
gall inks. Both types create problems for preservationists.

In fine art, the term 'pen and ink' denotes a drawing technique involving the use of black and other coloured
inks which are applied to a support (generally paper) with either a dip pen or a reservoir pen. This traditional,
versatile media has been used by Western artists since ancient-Egyptian times, for sketches, finished drawings
or ink and wash paintings. It is also one of the main mediums involved in book illustration.

Charlie Chaplin final speech in The Great Dictator



..Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world, millions of despairing men, 
women, and little children, victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent 
people. To those who can hear me, I say "Do not despair." The misery that is now upon us is 
but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate 
of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to 
the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish...

 “I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you'll dream dangerously and outrageously, 
that you'll make something that didn't exist before you made it, that you will be loved 
and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return. 
And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom 
in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will
always be kind.”

― Neil Gaiman
