Did you know that the best quill pens were usually made from goose, swan and later turkey feathers?
So I decided to create my own:
This is the Crooked Quill and a bottle of Magical Ink…
I think there is the beginning of a story here!
According to Wikipedia, “Quill pens were the instrument of choice during the medieval era due to their compatibility with parchment and vellum.”
Here is another quill feather I created with a gold gel pen and Prismacolor pencils.
Quill pens are still used today mainly by professional scribes and calligraphers.
I have a turkey feather that a friend gave me and I am going to try making a quill out of it. Maybe I will write a story with it!
Which feather do you like the best?
