There was a time before computers and text messages when actual writing was practically an art form. Each carefully balanced instrument is itself a work of fine craftsmen. To use a fine writing instrument such as a Michel Perchin, Oscarson, or William Henry, to feel the nib glide smoothly over fine stationery makes one believe that no bolder words were written, no signature so fine. In addition to fine pens and stationery, Dromgoole's also carries leather photo albums and other fine gift lines. The knowledgeable staff will also help design and printing custom invitations. - JoAnn Takasaki
