It's a trend driven less by nostalgic baby boomers than by an eco- and fashion-conscious younger set, many of them drawn to the analog attractions of pens, ink and paper.Goulet, who has posted over 2,000 fountain-pen-related YouTube videos, is something of a rock star of the fountain pen world.There's even a SubReddit for fountain pens, complete with its own lingo: "fps" is short for fountain pens and "npd" stands for new pen day, the day a person purchases a new fountain pen.Some examples of coveted fountain pens include clear models, where you can see the ink sloshing around; fancy Italian models by the Florence-based Visconti company (their "Homo Sapiens Bronze Age" fountain pen is made from hardened basaltic lava from the Mount Etna volcano in Italy); and Taiwanese-made TWSBI pens that come in limited-edition color schemes.Not only can fountain pens be inexpensive, Goulet says, but other stubborn misperceptions about them should also be shelved.
