Oxford Pen Shop
A walk-down 600-year-old Turl Street needs you past three Oxford colleges and a-row of a number of the oldest and best-respected shops around. Nestled included in this is Scriptum Fine Stationery. Inside, amid the odor of fabric and the sound of Italian opera, you'll find an Aladdin's Cave of hand-stitched leather-bound journals, dip pens, quills, Murano cup pencils, inks, sealing wax, prints and Oxfordshire's largest assortment of Venetian masks.
Azeem Zakria, Scriptum’s director and creative head, founded business after being motivated by a stationery emporium in Florence. Scriptum launched in Oxford’s Golden Cross in May 2003 and moved to its bigger Turl Street premises in 2006.
