Emerald Boa – Bookbinder’s Snake Ink

Bookbinders is an Australian online store that creators claim to be  “on a relentless quest in search of products that will fire the imagination of the 21st century writer”. There may be something to their words – the company presents their products in attractive and inspiring way. Some time ago Bookbinders started to offer Snake Ink to their customers. The ink is sold in 30 ml bottles inspired in design “by the wily snake oil salesmen of the early 1900’s, and in colour by the beautiful and dangerous snakes of the world”.

Emerald Boa green ink looks good and fresh. I think it’s my favourite in the series. There was no issues with it – the flow is good, it doesn’tcause any feathering or bleedthrough. Well done guys.

  1. A nice lively green. Standardgraph has something similar, but I can’t remember the name.

    Have you ever reviewed any Standardgraph inks? I have a few, would you like some samples to try?
