Scriptus Toronto Writing Show 2018 Inks - Maple Red & Northern Twilight!

The Scriptus Toronto Writing Show 2018 is celebrating its 5th anniversary with inks from KWZI... and this time, it's a re-release of two favourites! Maple Red⁣⁣⁣ was released for Scriptus' 2nd year and sold out in 40 minutes. Northern Twilight was released for Scriptus' 3rd year and sold out in 45 minutes (with twice the amount of bottles as Maple Red!). Previously, they were show-exclusives but this year, there will be bottles available to the online community so if you must have one of these gorgeous inks, you can head over to bauerinks.ca to learn how you can secure one (or both) for yourself. Make sure to do so before October 28, 2018, so you know what you need to do to make it happen!

Maple Red: a stunning red that evokes the image of maple leaves changing colour. Saturated, vivid, warm, and truly beautiful.⁣

Northern Twilight: an elegant, intense blue-black with strong teal tones and hints of burgundy sheen.⁣

Yes. I know I mixed up the swab names.

Thank you to Appelboom for sending this ink for a review! Like many of you out there, Le Petit Prince is a special story from the days of being a little one, so I was quite curious to see what Montblanc had done with this.

PROS
  • Nice color, very legible, even with finer writers.
  • Pretty bottle!
  • The bottle is easy to fill from.
  • Easy to store/stack on your shelf.
  • Easy to clean.
  • Shades beautifully.
  • A larger bottle of ink is nice - more ink than the little Special Edition bottles!
  • Great design on the box.
Montblanc Le Petit Prince Red Fox Ink Review @AppelboomLaren @Montblanc_World 1
CONS
  • A larger bottle of ink costs quite a bit.
  • The color looks best in wide, wet nibs if you are looking for shading.
OVERALL

This is a slightly unusual color but it's really perfect for a red fox - it has an orange-brown-red color and the fur is not all consistently the same color so if we could blend it all, this is probably the color would be. The bottle is great, the packaging is great, the color is interesting enough to add to your collection, and it behaves really well.
