Van Dieman's The Wilderness Series Federation Peak - 30ml Fountain Pen Ink
This ink is an ash dark grey based upon Federation Peak, a lone quartzite mountain possessing a menacing sharp spire on the Eastern most tip of the East Arthur ranges, overlooking Hanging Lake and 600m above Lake Geeves in the south west wilderness of Tasmania.
Sir Edmund Hilary declared that Federation Peak was “Australia’s only real mountain”. Van Dieman’s wanted to pay homage to this captivating monument to Australia’s history and Tasmania’s wilderness.
Van Dieman's Wilderness Series is ten fountain pen inks inspired by the majestic, beautiful and ofttimes humbling wonders that await in the Tasmanian wilds. As an extension of our original Van Dieman's Colours of Tasmania, and as a series unto itself, we created the Wilderness Series to encapsulate the natural colours of this awe-inspiring and untouched southern land.

Each of the dozen colours on offer is designed from and named after a location, natural aspect or product of Tasmania. From our best-selling "Devil Black", an aggressive little ink with an equally notorious namesake, to our majestic, well cherished and protected "Styx Valley Forest Green", to our chilled and serene "Freycinet Aquamarine" and our deliciously tempting "Tamar Pinot Noir Wine Red", Van Dieman's inks are both a cut above the rest and a step outside the norm.
Be adventurous and explore the possibilities these inks have to offer.
