‘Fountain Pens of the World’ is the nearest approximation possible to an encyclopaedia of the fountain pen and constitutes an indispensable source-book for collectors, designers, traders, retailers, investors and devotees of fountain pens in general.From the Author:
The success of my first book, ‘Fountain Pens Vintage and Modern’ encouraged me to embark on a more substantial work.
I wished for a book to document the fountain pens and their industries world-wide. A book that covers models and information, not documented before.
I wished for the highest quality professional photography and all the pens to be reproduced life-size.
It took three years dedication and a Classic Pens limited investment of $400,000 to publish ‘Fountain Pens of the World’. At the same time, the book was only made possible through the loyalty and patience of the Classic Pens employees and the support of many pen manufacturers and collectors around the world who willing made their collections available for photography. The result is a coffee table size book which has come to be recognized the most important work ever published on fountain pens.
