Majority of us look at a pen and find it a bit obsolete. With new age technology taking over, our writing gets transformed onto the digital world. Each time I pick up a pen, I am surprised with my wrist having a mind of its own. I cannot seem to get the rhythm of writing like I used to as a kid. Yet, the memories of owning a fountain pen in high school is as vivid as it can be. Having to change the cartridges midst the exams and having ink stains on your hands. I think many of us can relate. The most precious moment, receiving a designer pen as a gift!
It’s not a surprise that fountain pens are a collectable. Pens vary with vintage designs and are more high-tech writing instruments. A designer pen is sheer extravagance spinning a bit of regal charm that makes it a timeless asset to own.
Montegrappa, founded in 1912 is one of the oldest fountain pen makers in Italy. And renowned for creating stunning pens each filled with its own personality and panache.
Montegrappa unveiled the The Beauty Book Collection in support of a noble cause. The line of sublime writing instruments are notable for the sheer beauty of their sinuous forms and the precious materials such as pearlised Grey celluloid and Sterling Silver trim.
