The Nouveau Blue, Esterboork’s newest addition to their core range, celebrates the innovation of artist Alphonse Mucha’s work and his use of particular shades of blue, blended into a material that reflects the celluloid of pen making past.
Mucha’s name is now synonymous with the art nouveau style, his background was in illustration background and became widely and commercially well-known for his product advertisements. Whilst living in Paris his work included studies of the female figure feeding into his commercial large-scale posters which was often based on Parisian film stars of the time in particular film actress and icon, Sarah Bernhardt.
The Estie, short for Esterbrook, is a tribute to the brand and its storied history and evokes a feeling of 1930s nostalgia. Esterbook began manufacturing nibs in the US in the mid-1800s, but the 1930s were a period of importance, as they introduced their first interchangeable nib system in 1933. The interchangeable nibs gave the user many options for writing, whether in school, business, personal etc. Today, a similar system is reborn with the Estie and the specially engineered MV Nib Adaptor (not included). The MV adaptor delivers a vintage nib experience with a modern shape Esterbrook pen.
The oversized fountain pen has an overall length (closed) of 155.4mm (cap posted 185.4mm) compared to the standard Estie which is 149.1mm closed and 170.3mm posted
