A Fine Art

Letters, notes, journals – personal expression, made more so with the distinctive look of a fountain pen. We bet Liz Carpenter – Lady Bird Johnson’s press secretary – had her own favorite.
Most of our picks have 14- or 18-karat gold nibs to foster a beautiful line. From left, Visconti’s Camelot, one of 38 made, $1,995. Montblanc’s Starwalker, $610. Pelikan’s Souverän M450, gold and green tortoiseshell style, $695. Lamy’s Accent Brilliant Briar Wood, $195. Aurora’s Afrika, one of 7,500 made, $1,050. Namiki’s handmade Panda, one of 700, $3,500.
