Fahrney's Exclusive 2019 Retro 51 Cherry Blossom Notebook
It’s that time again! We’re thrilled to present our 90th Anniversary Cherry Blossom writing instruments for 2019, produced exclusively for Fahrney’s by Retro 51.
Released each year to coincide with the blooming of the spring cherry blossoms in our home base of Washington, DC, the 13th collection features the cherry blossoms in a modernist style framing the National Gallery of Art’s East Building. The H-shaped building, designed by I.M. Pei and finished in 1978, exhibits modern and contemporary works from artists such as Picasso, Mattise and Warhol. These artists inspired Retro to create a bold design printed in a colorful palette with the pen as the canvas. Layers of blues, greens, pinks, black and white are silk-screened on the solid metal barrel of each pen and finished with satin silver trim.
The limited production 2019 Cherry Blossom collection includes a Retro Tornado fountain
pen with stainless steel nib, a twist-top rollerball/ball pen, and a 1.15mm pencil with eraser, all shipped in a custom Fahrney’s Cherry Blossom tube. Note: the fountain pen is fitted with Retro’s all-new, German-made steel nib that offers improved ink flow and responsiveness with each stroke. Our exclusive 2019 Cherry Blossom journal makes a fine companion. Please order early - Cherry Blossom pens are limited production and sell out fast!
