It looks gorgeous! I am a fan of nice stationery, fancy stationery, posh stationery and cute stationery. Going to have a little serahc for those now as I'm ever so slightly jealous heehee


Other than disposable biros, there is only one pen for me, the Fisher Space Pen - it's all very well having something classy that looks good, but the space pen range with pressurized ink feed gives no-skip performance, even if the paper is greasy.

Not sure if Cross have anything with a similar forced feed to ensure performance for even the most cack-handed writer.

@Natasha - I do have a disposable notepad from the 99p shop on my desk as well, but that's more for things you scribble then throw in the bin. I have quite a collection of nice notebooks now - trouble is, some of them are too nice to write in.

@Matt - I like the sound of that space pen, will have to seek it out


Even has an entry in Wikipedia

And maybe best of both worlds, there ARE "space pen" pressurized refills made to fit Cross pens! And for papermate, so it seems any pen can be turned into a "space pen".
