According to the Chinese zodiac, people born in the year of the monkey are curious and imaginative. It’s also a great year for everyone who aspires to be creative, good communicators, intelligent and eager to make friends. It is logical – and proper! – that Caran d’Ache is paying tribute to this expressive animal with a limited edition Year of the Monkey pen. Against a black, shiny lacquer body, a long-armed primate with an expressive face leaps out in bright yellow lacquer lines with an eminently Asian feel. The penmaker’s Chinese seal affixed in red – a lucky color in China – guarantees its authenticity. Available in a limited edition of 888, the first of these expressive works are available from Point Plume – where else?
