Ukiyo-e Urushi Hokusai Blue Fountain Pen by Taccia – a flamboyant model for a smooth writing writing

NEW!

The term ukiyo, meaning “image of the floating world”, originally describes a sad world where nothing is constant. In the Edo period (1603-1868), its meaning shifted towards an epicurean view of life.

The expert’s opinion: the aesthetics of Ukiyo-e are breathtaking. The elegance of  its design as well as the brightness of the colours without forgetting their gradation which is the result of an extraordinary precision work. As for the nib made by Sailor, it is uniquely smooth and precise. Once the future owner has used it, he/she will certainly find it very difficult to part with it. It should be noted that this nib is slightly thiner than the ones of Sailor fountain pens (1/2 size).

Ukiyo-e Urushi Hokusai Blue Fountain Pen by Taccia – a flamboyant model for a smooth writing

The term ukiyo, meaning “image of the floating world”, originally describes a sad world where nothing is constant. In the Edo period (1603-1868), its meaning shifted towards an epicurean view of life. The term e means “painting, drawing”. Thus ukiyo-e is a Japanese artistic movement oriented towards the popular pleasures of the urban bourgeoisie of the time through woodcut prints. These Japanese prints greatly influenced European painting and, in particular, Paul Cézanne and Paul Gauguin as well as the Impressionists.

Katsushika Hokusai was a Japanese draughtsman, painter and engraver of the 18th century, specialising in ukiyo-e. Taccia has created the Ukiyo-e Urushi Hokusai as a tribute to his work and to this Japanese art. The model, made of ebonite and with a perfect cylindrical shape, is covered with urushi lacquer, which has an unmistakable brown colour. The artist then shifted the colour to bright, flamboyant tones – orange, then yellow, and finally silver – highlighting the main colour, Koi-Ai blue found in Hokusai’s drawings.

The beautiful, stylized clip is gold plated. The two-tone 14-carat gold nib is made by Sailor and is available in sizes EF, F, MF, M, B, MS and Z.

The Urushi Hokusai Ukiyo-e will be delivered on a beautiful cream-coloured cloth, in a splendid wooden box, which is itself housed in a box illustrated with Hokusai’s drawing “The great wave of Kanagawa”, which main colour is the Koi-Ai blue. The box also contains a purple kimono case for your fountain pen to accompany you on a daily basis, a bottle of Koi-Ai blue ink and a postcard with the drawing on the box.
