Hear ye, hear ye! The Herald is here declaring a new era has begun and yet the mission of Retro 51 will continue forth…”Life is too short to carry an Ugly Pen!”
As we build towards a bright future – with the first Popper not only of 2021, but also of the new torchbearers of Retro 51 – we wanted to highlight the amazing community of writers, calligraphers, creatives and day to day pen aficionados who appreciate a fine writing instrument.
The Herald highlights the slogan we have all come to love and proclaim when we show off our writing collection at work and home. Hidden messages encircle the pen, weaving a symbolic story of Retro 51. It has been said, “the pen is mightier than the sword,” and “beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” and this pen’s eye is surrounded by strength and beauty. With The Herald, you have a tool which allows you to create new beginnings, write new worlds… You have been given the keys to unlock untold mysteries. With this pen, you are part of a community. You are entrusted to be the messenger spreading the word that “Life is too short to carry an Ugly Pen!” All of these symbols (and more) are printed and accentuated with a Victorian pattern (and a surprise in the border) over a stainless-steel barrel complete with antique silver trim.
Pick up The Herald, a keystone design for your Retro 51 collection. They are limited to 1951 rollerballs with each design engraved with a limited-edition number.
