In this issue

In this issue: With the new Backgammon limited edition collection, Italy’s Visconti takes the ancient tradition of table games very seriously. As Germany’s Diplomat enters its next 100 years of pen making, it finds itself at a literal and figurative Nexus of creativity. And as the classic comic book series The Rocketeer celebrates its 40th anniversary, Retro 51 introduces a new collection of officially-licensed writing instruments. Meanwhile, the iconic brand Sheaffer enters the William Penn era of stewardship, Richard Binder wraps up his two-part series on WWI-era trench pens, and we profile two up-and-coming nib masters. Plus, Trends in ’23: the new year promises exciting pens, inks, papers, and accessories from brands new and old, big and small.
