In this issue

In this issue: From the new Imagination to the Grandeur to all its other pens in between, German pen company Waldmann is showing that, after over 100 years in existence, it still has some guilloche and lacquering tricks up its sleeve. With the space race taking a new turn, U.S. brand Fisher Space Pen uses its ingenuity to create space-age pens with contemporary stylishness. With DiamondCast resins, Tim McKenzie proves that one person can change the face of an industry. Appelboom Boston continues that city’s legacy of fine pen shops and Joost Appelboom’s legacy of fine pen salesmanship. Les Sheely creates some “serious nibbage” for professional scribes and amateurs alike through Stylosuite Writing Station. Plus: ring in the new year with pens, inks, and desk accessories from over 30 distinct brands in our “Trends in 2022” special section.
