The Pelikan Evolution Script Fountain Pen. Pelikan is celebrating this quantum leap in the history of human civilisation with a new limited edition. The first fountain pen of this series bears the name "Evolution of Script". With this, Pelikan is looking back to the origins of writing thousands of years ago: from the cave paintings that were the precursors of writing, via the invention of hieroglyphics in Egypt and Mesopotamian cuneiform, to the development of the Greek alphabet as the point of departure for European scripts.

The high-grade resin cap is engraved with cave painting motifs. The barrel, which is gold-plated with lacquer embellishments, displays the other early forms of writing as finely drawn symbols, hand-engraved in masterly fashion. The individual epochs are visually separated by gold-plated rings, in order to symbolise appropriately the line of development. The incomparable nature of this collectors’ item is very apparent in the 18-carat gold nib, which will be embossed with a different design for each edition.
On the clip, the shape of which reflects the overall form of the pen, the same pattern as is embossed on the nib is repeated in high relief, recessed into the clip. Technically too, this masterpiece represents the culture of writing in its purest form. Solid brass components guarantee reliable functionality combined with the highest degree of writing comfort. The artistic realisation of the theme, united with the consummate workmanship exercised on materials of the highest quality, makes "Evolution of Script" a highly desirable object, particularly for collectors. The plunger fountain pen is to be produced in a limited edition restricted to 930 examples worldwide: this recalls the first European adaptation of the Phoenician alphabet, which occurred on Crete in around 930 BC. The edition number, which is engraved on the end of the filling knob, makes each fountain pen unmistakably a one-and-only object.

Additional Brand Information
Pelikan is a German manufacturer of fine fountain pens, rollerball pens, ballpoint pens, and mechanical pencils. As the inventor of the differential-piston filling method, the "true" history of Pelikan began with the model "100" and the modified 100N (both fountain pens), which sparked the genesis of the company's distinctive styling. Today, Pelikan's modern-day flagship line is known as the "Pelikan Souveran", consisting of the M300, M400, M600, M800 and the M1000. Pelikan is also notable for manufacturing many of its pens using cellulose acetate, instead of the more modern plastics used by most other major pen makers. Considered a true friend of the fountain pen enthusiast, Pelikan fountain pens pens are a “must-have” staple for any true pen connoisseur’s collection.
