Visconti has just announced his latest Limited Edition: Casa Batlló
This pen created from Visconti artisans is the perfect interpretation of the philosophy which pervades Casa Batlló. Indeed, the owners of Casa Batlló, very enthusiast about the pen deisgn, have given to Visconti the right to present this masterpiece to the world, as ambassador of the essence of Antoni Gaudì.
Visconti has used the most sophisticated techniques: from micro-fusion pieces reworked by hand piece by piece, to glossy enameling and iridescent coating to reproduce the tiles on the roof of the building. The careful research of materials, carved keeping the curves and lines of the original building of Casa Batlló, are synonyms of Visconti craftsmanship skills.
The body and the cap are curved on three layers; each one is molded in different materials (Acrylic, Silver, enamel), and representing the facade of Casa Batlló.
On top of the cap as well as on the blind cap the shape is respecting the particular design of the roof (built from small colorful tiles).
The roof is arched and was likened to the back of a dragon. The clip (rounded to the left of center and terminating at the top in a turret and cross) represents the lance of Saint-George plunged into the back of the dragon.
The pen is provided with the famous double reservoir power filler patented from Visconti as well as with the iconic 23kt Palladium nib.
The Pen has been developed with the support of the owners of Casa Batlló in Barcelona, which has celebrated the 110 anniversary since the termination of works in 1906.
As ambassador of beauty, art and luxury, Visconti has been chosen again to represent the spirit of the famous artist.
This pen is limited to 188 pcs and costs € 4500, Pre-order now by mail

Precisely 20 years after Montegrappa issued the first Cigar edition, Montegrappa has again honoured this most elevated form of smoking with a new limited edition. Although tobacco usage has fallen out of favour, cigars remain a guilty pleasure for connoisseurs who appreciate the rich tastes and aromas
In the modern era, with smoking no longer accepted in public, cigar lovers have formed clubs in major cities. Here, smokers can enjoy cigars in a manner reminiscent of the era of the original oil barons, railway magnates and other captains of industry, for whom cigars were mandatory accessories. Often, the smoking experience is accompanied by a brandy or other tipple.
Made in the special “Tobacco” celluloid, one of the 24 hues Montegrappa boasts in its archives, the Cigar pen resembles the subject with uncanny realism. The colour was chosen for its particular combination of light brown with lighter, pearlised streaks that resemble organic tobacco leaves.
Raden is a traditional Japanese decorative craft mainly used for lacquer ware and woodwork.
By working with small stripes of precious shell material, the artist of the Raden pen creates a beautiful, impressive piece of art. Each piece is truly unique.
The first step to create the fountain pen Raden M800 Royal Gold is to give the surface a deep black color impression by using the special Japanese Urushi lacquer. Then the typical stripes are made with particles from the precious white mother of pearl shell. A 24 carat gold foil is carefully affixed as background on these stripes. In the next step the stripes are fixed to the cap and barrel by a coating of laquer. Finally, the artist individually signs and numbers each fountain pen with the Maki-e technique, which used to be reserved exclusively for Japanese Royals as an indication of their power.
With the limited edition Raden series, Pelikan applies this wonderful Japanese decorative craft to the technical base of fountain pen models of its famous Souveraen series.
The Raden M800 Royal Gold fountain pens are pieces of art with finely-chased 18 carat gold nib in the size M, accentuated with a rhodium decor. Each fountain pen is encased in a traditional Japanese gift box which is made of Paulownia wood.
The Raden M800 Royal Gold will be available as from June 2017 in a limited edition of 388 pieces worldwide for € 1785.

Montegrappa, Italy’s oldest manufacturer of fine writing instruments, is proud of its heritage and has honoured all manner of Italian cultural touchstones, from grappa production to soccer to the Tricolore. With the contemporary classic, the Fortuna pen, as its base, Heartwood pays homage to that most Italian of values: a love of organic materials and the gifts of Mother Nature. The new pens explore the relationship between man and nature, a precious link that must never be undervalued.
Three versions of the Heartwood pen have been created to represent the range and variety of woods that hold special appeal for the connoisseur and the aesthete. The material is recognised globally as one mastered and elevated by Italian craftspersons. Montegrappa has embodied the gorgeous brown, black or tan hues of various woods in pen caps and barrels fashioned from organic wood materials, accented by brushed bronze-coloured trims.
Most popular with Italian woodworkers, and found in furnishings, in boats and even musical instruments are woods with distinctive grains and colours. One pen is fashioned of the darkest teak, walnut provides a pen with a nutmeg colouring while pear wood delivers a reddish cast.
Offered as fountain pens, rollerballs and ballpoints, Fortuna Heartwood pens remind us that – even in an age of wireless communications and high-tech materials – handwriting with instruments fashioned from elements provided by nature will always embody the essence of humanity.
With the purchase of each Heartwood writing instrument Montegrappa offers as a gift an exclusive notebook in recycle Woodstock paper, made in Italy by Fabriano
This collection will be available in our store in May, all pre-orders will receive a complementary Montegrappa ink bottle
