In my pokings-about on Project Gutenberg yesterday, I randomly came across a history of ink. "Forty Centuries of Ink", it's titled. Excellent. I'm going to try reading it-- it seems like the sort of thing I should read. The author claims that "the bibliographical story of "Ink" is replete with many interesting episodes, anecdotes and poetical effusions", so I expect to be entertained.

Any fun anecdotes yet?

Not yet! It's been a bit slow to get into-- lists of prices of ink in antiquity, for example. Not exactly a cliffhanger. I'll keep at it, though.
