My 10yr old daughter loves you magazine and catalog. She has literally worn out the pages as she sits in the morning perusing them over and over again. Usually with a cup of her Orange Bergamot tea that she prefers. She came to me with every dollar she had saved up, $25 in total, wanting to order a fan, a quill and some ink. After looking through everything with her I upgraded her savings and got her this set along with the fan and some extra ink. She already had a wax seal set. No sooner did it arrive in her name and she immediately cleared her desk in her room and started writing letters to friends and relatives. It is a quality set and worth the price. However the memory it has brought me and the experience it has brought her is well beyond any price that could be named.
This is a great size for travel but large enough to add extras for your letters. The box is very nice quality
I work at a school that teaches in a classical form. We read original source materials, the works of our founders, and keep commonplace books (students and staff). After buying this set, it became my primary writing tool. I love it!
