Hinks Inks – Post 1 “This Guy collects Labeled Inks”

John Hinkel and his Labeled Inks

I had always heard that John Hinkel collected labeled inks. It wasn’t until I saw his phenomenal display at the FOHBC Memphis 2011 Show and Sale did I really understand that This Guy Collects labeled inks! With close to 1,500 hundred examples, John certainly has an impressive collection. As I sort through his wonderful photography, I hope to break this down into a number of posts to eventually help me write a Feature Story for the FOHBC web site. These first pictures give you and idea of the depth of his collection.
