The Quill

An Asian Beginning…
A nib attached to a sort of stylus that could be dipped into ink can be traced back to around 1800BC when the Chinese developed plant, animal and mineral inks. South Indian scholars were writing with sharp needles and ink made of a variety of substances from tar to burned and moistened ground bones from at least 400BC. Much later in history, sticks of ink were imported from Asia and the Orient to liquefy with water. This gave birth to the term ‘Indian ink’.
