Ink Review: Papier Plume Bootlegger’s Sacrament

Papier Plume Bootlegger's Sacrament

Papier Plume Bootlegger’s Sacrament. This is a dusky purple ink, with a red tint, that can look a little brownish on some paper. It’s one of two limited-edition inks that Papier Plume of New Orleans is bringing to the Chicago Pen Show next month.

  1. This looks like an unusual and very lovely color. I haven’t seen anything like it elsewhere. I took calligraphy in school (many) years ago and am getting back into it – just purchased a few new ink dip pens. I would LOVE to win this color, though I would probably buy it if I don’t win.

  2. Nice review and a great looking ink… and no, there’s not going to be any left online is there? That looks way too good to survive past the show… and at that price, somebody’ll buy half their stock in one go πŸ™‚

    1. If somebody is there to buy half the stock in one go, they need to introduce themselves to me, so we can discuss them (i) sponsoring the Chicago Pen Show, and (ii) buying me a cup of coffee or a drink. Hey imaginary ink mogul, Go Fund Me! πŸ™‚

        1. My dude, I’d love to see you as a pen and ink mogul, but you kinda glossed over the “fund Laura” part of that pitch, which was the key part, for me at least. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you!

      About the ink: they are making 120 bottles of it, plus 120 bottles of Da Blue. I wrote a prediction, and then deleted it, because … seriously, what do I know? πŸ™‚ I’ll just say, if you can’t make the show, don’t give up. Check Papier Plume’s website the Monday after the show. πŸ™‚

  3. This colour looks quite special and elegant. I have seen your review only on a small screen so far (it is midnight in London) but will enjoy looking at it again in the morning on my PC. I think the comparison with grape skins in paintings, is a good one. Great review as always.☺
