Friday Outfit: The Letter Month

April 06, 2018 2 min read

fountain pen letter month

Hello everyone,

As it couldn’t be otherwise, the first Friday Outfit of this month is inspired in literature, which is historically inseparable from fountain pens. April is worldwide considered as “The Letter Month” due to the countless ephemeris related to great authors that are celebrated this month.

In fact, April 23rd was instituted by UNESCO as the World Book and Copyright Day to commemorate the death of Miguel de Cervantes, William Shakespeare and Garcilaso de La Vega in 1616. Also, due to the importance of The one-armed Man of Lepanto’s fountain pen in Spanish Literature, 23rd April is also the World Spanish Day. The ONU’s purpose for this is to “spread the history, culture and use of spanish as a language”

This year, The Cervantes Prize goes to Sergio Ramírez, who will become the first nicaraguan and central american in achieving this award.Former lawyer, the fountain pen of this essayist, novelist and journalist have a deeply social and political background.

For him, the most special feature of Don Quixote is that he didn’t desire to return from his trip. In Cervantes words, “who reads much and walks much, sees much and knows much”.

And you? What do you like the most about the act of reading?

You can find all these products in our web or in our boutique at Nuñez de Balboa, 90 Madrid. Do not hesitate to visit us whenever you want. We will be looking forward to meet you!

Aurora Optima Jade Fountain Pen

Wonderful pen, very smooth. Customer service from Iguanasell excellent and pen arrived within I day from Madrid to UK. Can’t get better than that.

Midnight in Florence

Fabulous pen, very swift delivery - and best of all, Iguansell covers customs charges to the UK, so the price on the website is what you pay! Altogether excellent!

Visconti Van Gogh Starry Night Fountain

Great looking pen and great to write with!

Beautiful pen

I already own a pelikan m600, my favourite pen. I bought this for my organiser, slightly smaller and fine nib for the thinner lines. The pen looks stunning, great quality apart from the nib which felt very scratchy and irritating to use. I managed to fix it my self by polishing it with micro mesh. Writes fine now, but at this price I don’t expect to have to fix quality control issues myself, it should be just perfect out of the box.
