2010-10-14herbin inks the stationery boutique at la grande bibliothèque is having a closing sale, with all merchandise at 50% off. i promised myself not to buy any more notebooks, so i got some herbin ink cartidges. they only had five colours left, so i got one tin of each: bleu azur, bleu nuit, cacao du brésil, gris nuage, poussière de lune.
they're not terribly exciting colours, they seem kind of washed-out. cartridges are a good way to sample some ink, so i'll see how they turn out on paper, when i eventually try them out. it's too bad i don't have enough fountain pens to ink them all at once
