V-mail Ink Series

A few weeks ago we obtained some dated, sealed, and viable vintage area inks with extremely patriotic labels (this, to us - is a rare opportunity to examine earlier industrial history first hand!). Many referenced "V-mail", a term that seems to have begun in WW I. These were dated from 1939 to 1945 – and of course began in earnest after Dec. 7th, 1941 with the patriotic WW II themes. With those inks as models and a … [Read more...]

Bad Blue Heron

In the classic American country landscape, when one is really bad...one soon finds themselves on a chain gang.

The color is a fiery brown with hints of Dante within the halo of the line - which explodes upon the page if one makes a sample line upon a wet paper towel to see this … [Read more...]

La Reine Mauve

The name conjures up images of royal purple and the artwork is indeed very much related to the royals of France. Alas, the evolution of this ink and this label incorporated the input of more than 1,000 Noodler's Ink aficionados and references to vintage inks spanning nearly 100 years. It was proposed with grace and compelling evidence of its need by an intense fan of this sector of the light spectrum - only wished for in … [Read more...]
