Madrid Pen Shops - November 2010

This chronicle, as that devoted to pen shops in Tokyo, needs a special attention to be of any utility. The updated version can be found on this page in this blog.

Madrid was my city for many years. Now I am just another visitor. A frequent visitor if you would, but a visitor nonetheless.

I started writing with fountain pens in this city. I took probably too many notes with them during my high school and college years. And I received some pens as presents from friends and relatives. But pens were hardly the obsession they are now and I never had the need to find very specialized shops.

But now I do look for pens and getting to write a list of them was almost a necessity.
