GV Faber-Castell Yozakura Cherry Blossom Ballpoint
Fahrney’s U.S. Exclusive! Graf von Faber-Castell Yozakura Cherry Blossom special edition
Every year in Washington, DC, there’s a celebration during the months of March and April to enjoy the spring blooms and commemorate the gift of 3,000 cherry trees from Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo City to the people of the United States on March27, 1912. The new Guilloche Special Edition from Graf von Faber- Castell was inspired by the Japanese tradition of celebrating cherry blossoms in spring, and Fahrney’s is delighted to have the exclusive U.S. introduction of the series. The Japanese gather in parks and streets from March to May to eat, drink and admire this magnificent flower together – preferably in the evening at the so-called ‘yozakura’ (“nighttime cherry blossom festival”) when cherry trees are illuminated, making their pale pink blossoms glow against the night sky. It is a magnificent spectacle that celebrates the beauty and transience of life. Inspired by the magic of this nocturnal spring ritual, the new Guilloche Yozakura Special Edition includes the Guilloche twist ball pen in a hue of pale pink and
fountain pen. The writing instruments are presented in a gift box decorated with a Japanese cherry blossom motif. Matching accessories include a Yozakura pink leather zip pen case, bottle ink, Guilloche A5 notebook, and Guilloche wood pencils.
