David Bowie: ★ Blackstar LE
Ladies and gentleman, we present David Bowie: ★ (Blackstar) – the newest addition to the Montegrappa Icons series. This limited-edition fountain pen and rollerball is available to ship from the end of May 2021.
Since his dramatic death only two days after the release of his final studio album, David Bowie’s claim as one of the most iconic artists of the modern age has only strengthened.
The limited-edition David Bowie: ★ is ultra-modern – designed in the album’s sparse, futuristic visual style. Cap, trims and clip are structured from black ruthenium-plated brass, while the barrel and custom section are carved from black, high-density acrylic. All surfaces are embellished with diamond- and laser-engraved grids, glyphs and motifs created by designer, Jonathan Barnbrook.
Both modes are available in a continuous limited edition of 801 pieces (400 RB + 401 FP), with all nibs and tips embellished with the artist’s lightning-bolt logo. The edition numbering refers to 8 January: David Bowie’s birthday and the release date of his final work. Fountain pens are piston-fed and fitted with a 6mm, ruthenium-coated 18K nib (EF, F, M, B, BB, ST1) with a black ebonite feed.
Deluxe custom packaging continues the artistic theme of the album, with a die-cut star viewing panel. The package is designed for free-standing and wall-mounted display, and is equipped with a recessed mounting bracket
