Description

  




“Is there an ultimate pen? Does form always follow function? This lighthearted book is a celebration of how much fun a designer can have rising to the challenge of enlivening the familiar. Shape, size, colour and materials can all be used to transform everyday items into icons that capture the fleeting style moments of this fast-moving, machine-age century. The chronological order lets you see how form follows fashion across the century, and the accompanying text links each design to its Zeitgeist, and gives a colourful account of the ways in which designers have catered to the foibles and fantasies of their clients.

The Pen presents 36 such icons. Look at any one of them and it will immediately evoke images of 20th-century life. From the strictly functional to the wildly avant-garde, these are historically important or classic pens, and include some attractive modern limited editions. Writing has never been so stylish. “
