Van Dieman's Tassie Seasons (Summer) Tassie Salmon - 30ml Fountain Pen Ink
Nowhere in the world is Salmon farmed in such extreme conditions, as the southern seas off the coast of Tasmania. With nothing but open ocean for a thousand miles to Antarctica, and a global circumnavigation on either side, one feels like they have stepped off the edge of the world. These rough and tumultuous, yet extraordinarily fertile seas produce the most incredibly delicious salmon in the world. We want to pay tribute to this amazing produce that Tasmania cultivates. This ink is a pinky red with amazing shading qualities, designed with artists in mind, but beautiful in a medium to broad nibbed pen.
About Tassie Seasons
Tassie Seasons is the fifth series in Van Dieman's expanding collection of Tasmanian Fountain Pen Inks. These sixteen inks encapsulate the changing colours of Tasmania, with four inks dedicated to each season. Tassie Seasons is a mix of dark and light, warm and cool, every-day writing worthy and artistically minded colours, including two shimmer inks.
Tasmania is the only state in Australia with a truly temperate climate. Winter exhibits colourful festivals in the south, generous snowfalls in the central highlands, and foggy days in Launceston from July through to September. Cool and breezy spring days unveil a kaleidoscope of native flowers, vibrantly plumed birds and stunning butterflies. An abundance of local produce arrives in the summer, to be enjoyed with a day at the many beaches, and followed by the ominous summer storm. In Autumn enjoy late seasons figs and pepperberries and marvel at Australia's only native deciduous tree at the turning of the fagus.

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.
