i spotted this fountain pen, the s.t.dupont fidelio coat of mail , in a foutain pen store window four or five years ago. it has haunted me ever since. yes, i’m being a shade melodramatic — but, seriously, i’ve thought of it on and off since i saw it. obsessing? no, i don’t think so. just imagining how much i would love to write with it.
it’s too much to splurge and buy for myself, and more than we spend on each other in our family for gifts. so, it’s likely to stay as the phantom pen o’ my dreams.
