ABOUT THE SHOW

Bob Johnson started the DC Pen SUPERSHOW in 1992. With his continued vision and dedication in establishing a venue for pen enthusiasts to meet, sell, and discuss their interest in fountain pens, Bob created the largest pen show in the world drawing attendees from numerous countries and states.

Sadly, Bob passed away in September 2020 but his sister, Barbara Johnson, and nephew, Jeff Hancock, both long time pen show helpers, carry on his legacy.
