In this issue: With his newest collection, Deus Regit, David Oscarson explores his personal faith with a universal message of light over darkness. After 30 years, New York’s Kenro Industries is still setting standards in distribution while also continuing its rollout of the Esterbrook pen and accessories brand. The young pen brand Narwhal has changed the spelling of its brand to the Icelandic “Nahvalur,” but however you spell it, Nahvalur pens are a hot commodity. Whether working in precious woods, urushi and raden, or titanium alloy, the pens of Taiwan’s Cypress are as majestic as a tree. There’s a little corner of the internet where all your pen dreams come true, and it’s called Pen Heaven pen and accessories shop. Also: World War I and the Trench Pen, Parker Pen and the Fashion Academy, Jan Zander and Steinway & Sons, Pen World’s first-ever artisan fountain pen, and remembering journalism legend Jerry Ceppos. Plus, the 30th Annual Fall Preview: Branded for Greatness.
