"Italian pen maker Visconti is the king of this type of artistic attribution. Their pens are usually gorgeous, well-made writing instruments built from spectacular materials. They often write beautifully. But the marketing copy about the design inspiration seems only tenuously connected to the physical object."
Matt Armstrong, The Pen Habit
With a paragraph as beautifully constructed as this, Matt has hit the nail on the head about Visconti. When I read their marketing stories I actually find myself disliking the brand. Luckily for Visconti their pens are generally stunning and generally write better than expected, so I will possibly be adding something like the Saturno Blue Titan to my collection in the not so distant future.
