Hi everyone. I just took posession of my new book on fountain pens, and would love to share with you.
Alain VANDERAUWERA, is a swiss architect , and a talented artist. He lives and works at Yverdon-les-Bain, in Switzerland.
He has a passion, though. Could you guess? Yes, you're right: fountain pens. He has started, long ago, a wonderful, and much complete, fountain pen collection which he exposes at the LIttle Fountain Pen Museaum he has opened.
He likes to write his journal, and make illustrations of all the pens he buys, or comes across.
All his illustrations are fountain pen and ink made, as well as their colouring, using watercolour technic.
This first volume, of several others to come (we, passionate ones, hope so), was released several days ago. It is a Limited Edition of 500 copies, all of which numbered and posessing an Authenticity Certificate signed by the author / artist
The pages are loose cards (24), each with a fountain pen model drawn on it.
You can keep the cards as a book, or you can frame them.
The back of each page is blank - you can write about the pen drawn on it.
The possibilities are endless, the book, a beauty.
Its dimensions are 20cm x 12 cm - quite handy to carry around.
Fountain pen lovers, if you are interested, you can contact Alain through his mail, and order your copy:
You can see his presentation on his site, too
