Established in 1935, our family run business is the most recent link in a continuous line of family business spanning over 100 years. Scribes Delight is a living legacy to our parents, Herschel and Judy Lange. They dreamt of sharing their ability to find a respite from the sometimes impersonal world by experiencing the thrill of pen to paper. Imagine sharing the meaningful moments in your life by feeling the smooth flow of a classic fountain pen moving across hand milled cotton paper in a distinctive journal, a personal memoir or moving thank you note. Also imagine, your words being read and reread by those you love, generations from now. Your voice will travel in time. The memories of our father writing with his green fountain pen, filled with his favorite green ink are what inspired our love of the written word.
Moving to Washington, DC, Scribes Delight was the first to make and consult on Presidential Inaugural keepsakes for presidents such as President Clinton and President Bush. Scribes Delight was also the first to create elegant memorabilia for the National Cherry Blossom Festival elegant memorabilia, and pieces for The National Holocaust Museum, The National Capitol, and other national organizations.
Our retail stores, such as our flagship store at Faneuil Hall in Boston, attracted a legendary following for 22 years, where we, amidst a sea of hectic high-tech govnernment and financial offices, offered a quiet refuge from a hectic world.
We have been privileged, over the years, to fulfill some very special dreams. One such dream, is a memory book, which we created page by page for hiker Aran Ralston. Each element of the book was hand crafted to fit his unique memories & keepsakes then smyth-sewn and engraved. With the completion of every portion, we felt we were cheering him on. This book became a lasting testimony of his courage and an inspiration during his recovery. Aran's heroic story is timeless. His book was made to last forever, to be shared with his family and the world.
Lesser known heros, too, have shared, and realized their dreams with us. A literary professor, during a long, arduous battle with cancer, wanted to go back to teach using his "dream notebook:" a butterscotch, butter soft leather, notebook which was easy to carry, yet large enough to transport volumes of essays. Our team of skilled artisans took his drawing and made his vision:
It has been an honor to be a part of so many lives.
We have created products for luminaries and legends such as Aretha Franklin, Dolby Sound, Paramount, Pictures, The Spanish Music Awards, Kevin Costner, Colin Powell, Tim Russert and many more are part of the Scribes Delight family...become a part of our family too.
Scribes Delight is a living legacy to our parents Judith and Herschel whose philosophy of sincere hard work, attention and loving care to each piece, and enthusiasm for each customers dreams and needs, has been passed on to us, their daughters.
