About the Sailor Manyo collection:

Flowers have always been a popular poetic subject dating back to ancient Japanese history. This is the theme for Sailor's Manyo bottled ink series. Based on popular flowers frequently mentioned in Japanese “Manyoshu” – an anthology of compiled ancient poems – Sailor has chosen eight dye-based ink colors to best represent this vibrant palette range.

"Manyosyu" - Collection of Ten Thousand Leaves - is the oldest (c.759) and most revered anthology of Japan's poetic compilations. Over a period of four centuries, 4,516 poems were written by every class of person ranging from Emperors to merchants and farmers. "Manyo" is an abbreviation of "Manyosyu" and its meaning indicates people of all ranks.

"Manyosyu" is often regarded in Japan as a true expression of the Japanese spirit. The themes of the poems relate to love, elegies, nature, the seasons, and so on. Flowers are especially relevant in Japanese culture and about 1,500 of the poems in "Manyosyu" cover some 160 species of plants and 50 different flowers.

Pretty Color Just to Light for My Eyes

I saw this color on the Truphae website and I really liked it. One of the things I really like about Truphae is that they offer sample sizes for as many colors as they do. I say that after writing with the Sailor Manyo Haha Ink that while I really like the shade of blue, its too light for my eyes to write with it. I can see it but it made me realize that I should stick to the more vibrant and darker colors. That being said, I'm going to use up the sample, I might try drawing with it.

Again its a pretty color, just too light for my eyes to use regularly.
