founded in Brisbane in 1980 by Barbara and Bruce Nichol. There are now two shops
which serve the Brisbane City area. Offering a full range of services related not only
to pens and handwriting accessories, but also penmanship and calligraphy.


Owner and businesswoman Barbara Nichol has made a study of the history of writing
a specialty that is channelled into the vast range of penmanship materials available in
store, which spans everything from historic implements to high-tech modern inventions.
Nichol’s comprehensive study of writing—and especially of Copperplate, the fastest writing
method that has been developed—has led her to strive for a range of pens and writing
equipment that caters to serious writers, artists, calligraphers and other professionals.
