Yet Another Writing Sample (YAWS) - Red Inks from Montblanc

Today's writing and ink samples come from a surprise opportunity to sample a number of discontinued Montblanc inks, which are accompanied by some still-available Montblanc inks. The "cookie scented" ink is actually scented with vanilla. Montblanc Bordeaux was the precursor to Montblanc Burgundy Red, and it is no longer available.

(Note: these samples were done with a glass dip pen, which resulted in a great deal of spreading and feathering on this paper, which is from a Field Notes Night Sky notebook.)

This scan was done on an HP Deskjet F4280 at 600dpi.
Note: Because these scans are done with a light emitting printer, actual colors will, more likely than not, be slightly darker than they may appear, here. The colors shown, here, are probably a bit more reminiscent of what the ink would be like under a bright light or if it were held up and viewed with a light behind it.
