Art Brown, gone

“The closing of Art Brown also represents one more loss for a way of life — people who write with a fountain pen”: Quo Vadis Blog reports that Art Brown is out of business. The store began in 1924.

This is terrible. I didn't see this coming. I was there maybe three months ago and everything seemed fine---busy even. It was the only place I know of in the NYC area where you could buy Noodler's ink off the shelf. Noodler's made a special ink just for Art Brown called Manhattan Blue, a wonderful ink based on the official blue ink used in New York administrative offices in the 20s and 30s. Sad news indeed.
