  • Jason

    can anyone tell me where to find nibs like that? especially that enormous “fin” tailed one in the first video?

  • jason

    Actually, went ahead and answered my own question after suffering from extreme *ahem* pen envy.
    The “fin tailed” one is called a folded ruling pen, and is actually quite easy to make yourself. the spear tipped one is just a ruling pen, and is around $45 most places i looked. the very broad tipped pen is an Automatic Lettering Pen, and appears to be a size 6A

umekawa6

Equal parts mesmerizing and unsettling, Yoshimitsu Umekawa’s photographs are positively (and negatively) nuclear, drawing on the issues and anxieties that surround modern day Japan. See more images below.
