The Literature Inks of the Korean brand Wearingeul, or The Color of Literature Project, consists of different series of fountain pen inks in which the colors are inspired by the color moods of literary works.
‘I am a cat’ is an ink that portrays a cat’s perspective, looking from a distance at the pessimistic world it is full of irony. Inspired by the glittering eyes of a cat, the ink has a unique color in which golden shimmers are spread on top of a cool grey.
Wearingeul's Sanshiro ink is inspired by the yellow chrysanthemum. A yellow chrysanthemum in flower language stands for: disappointment, one-sided love and failed love. It reflects Sanshiro, who is passive and unable to express himself. The mainly vibrant yellow ink also shows amber hues that refer to the stamen and pistil.
'The Mind' Ink was motivated by Natsume Soseki's masterpiece 'The Mind'. The ink expresses the duality and naivety within the character of the teacher, who is apparently revered by everyone. 'The Mind' Ink is a color separation ink where the color of the ink separates during drying. This ink illustrates the duplicity and filthy spirit of man. From pastel violet, it ends in pastel blue with yellow color splitting off.
