Since the Roman empire, the color purple has been associated with royalty. In ancient times, creating purple in pigments was no easy feat. Therefore, the price of dye was astronomical and only affordable to the very wealthy. That regal relationship has continued to this day. In this month's Ink Drop, we invite you to write like a King or Queen with Monarch Madness!

One thing to note about Noodler's Kung Te-Cheng is that this ink can have some clogging tendencies. Some people choose to dedicate a specific pen just to use with this ink to help avoid this.
