I guess there’s an 80s collection that Robert Oster did and this was part of it. This one and Dusky Pink are the only two Robert Oster inks I own in full bottles (so far) so I guess that collection was made for me. I’ll have to try the other inks in it. I love this blue so much because of how saturated and yet unsaturated it is. I can’t decide if I like this one or Vinta Lucia better. They’re amazing blues.

Highest marks!
