Women Who Love Books Too Much: Bibliophiles, Bluestockings, and Prolific Pens from the Algonquin Hotel to the Ya-Ya Sisterhood Reviews

Women Who Love Books Too Much: Bibliophiles, Bluestockings, and Prolific Pens from the Algonquin Hotel to the Ya-Ya Sisterhood

Move over wild women and women who do too much: With this irreverent tribute, author Brenda Knight casts a lovingly arch eye at the women who have devoted their lives to books. From Sylvia Beach and other booksellers to librarians, editors, writers, bibliophiles, and celebrated book clubs, Knight takes readers on a ribald ride through the pages of history. Chapter titles include “Prolific Pens” (such as Joyce Carol Oates, author of over 100 books); “Mystics, Memoirists and Madwomen”; “Salons and Neosalons”; “Ink in Their Veins” (literary dynasties); and the titillating “Banned, Blacklisted, and Arrested.”

Using Ballpoint Pens as Promotional Items

Planning to use pens as promotional items? I recommend you start with Ballpoint Pens.

Why People Prefer Ballpoint Pens

In considering promotional pens, ballpoints pens should be on the top of your list. The reason is that most people prefer ballpoint pens over the other promotional pens. And below are some of the qualities that makes ballpoint pens the most preferred type of pen:

The ballpoint pen ink lasts longer

Due to the composition of the ballpoint’s ink, which is thick and oil-based, ballpoints take months to dry up. This certain quality also allows pen manufacturers to produce capless pens that would make use of different mechanisms that retract the tip of the pens. The oil-based ink of ballpoint pens also makes it less liable to smear or smudge because this type of ink dries faster on the paper surface as compared to water-based ink composition.

The ballpoint pens allow great control in writing

The ink flow of ballpoint pens vary based on the applied pressure. Thus, one can have varying thickness and shade for each stroke by changing the applied pressure and angle of writing. This certain quality makes ballpoint pens a popular art medium in presenting artworks with clear and crisp strokes.

There is an ideal ballpoint for everyone

Due to the great number of ballpoint manufacturers, there is an abundant variety of ballpoints with varying cost and design. Thus, anyone can find a ballpoint pen to suit his style and budget. From the simple yet practical Bic ballpoint pens to the pricey yet elegant designs of Waterman, there is surely a ballpoint pen for everyone and any occasion.

Using Ballpoint Pens as Promotional Items

When people go to trade shows and other similar events, they always try to remember things in the events that caught their interest. Using Custom Ballpoint Pens with your Logo on it and giving it to everyone a great way to advertise your product. They get to use it right away and your product or company is noticed and in effect gets their attention to check what your company is offering.

Inside my heart, there’s a tiny secret room
where I hide myself timidly with a door tightly shut.

Me, Zooka and my college classmate, Hel
we developed a unique, improvising working process of our art during college time.
Using PILOT HI-TEC-C ball pens,
me with 0.4 mm red pen and Hel with 0.3 or 0.25 mm black pen,
we worked one piece of art on the same paper in turn.
One drew first, then passed the sketch book to the other to finish the piece.
We didn’t tell the other person that what we were going to say in our work before it finished.
It was the art work itself to tell stories.

We have worked on this collection from 2004 to 2008.
Through 4 years, we gradually changed.
This book is the record for our green days.

The whole series of "RUBBING YOUR EYEBALLS":

或許每個人的創作都是內心的一個小房間
關上門以後就是最舒適的獨享居所

原本是由我雍小狼與大學同班同學廉小廉
上一堂很無聊的課時玩出來的即興塗鴉創作方法
到了大四卻發展成一個野心很大的繪本計畫
我們使用PILOT HI-TEC-C鋼珠筆,我用0.4的紅色,小廉用0.3的黑色(後來更進化成0.25)
在同一張紙上,我跟小廉輪流作畫
有時候我先,有時候她先,一個人畫完之後傳給下一個人
我們在作畫前不會告訴對方我們要畫什麼,也不會解釋自己畫的部份
我們只用彼此的畫在溝通

橫跨四年的時間,我們從大學生分別進入研究生、當兵、出社會的階段
這些時光裡我們經歷過的種種都反應在我們的畫裡
《眼底按摩》就是這樣一部跟著我們成長四年的作品,記錄我們青春的軌跡
現在終於如願集結成書,請有興趣的人點擊最上面book preview的連結,預覽我們的書吧!
