Product Info

Originating from the intricate Japanese pattern books of the 1660s.

Introducing the latest addition to the Officially Licensed Smithsonian Collection: Bijutsukai.

This exquisite Tornado™ Rollerball pen draws its inspiration from the rich artistic heritage of the Shin-Bijutsukai magazine, which graced the pages from 1901 to 1906 within the Smithsonian Libraries and Archives.

Originating from the intricate Japanese pattern books of the 1660s, the magazine's vibrant and abstract designs encapsulated the historical and technological evolution of Japanese society, influenced by the captivating allure of Art Nouveau and Japonisme. Shin-Bijutsukai emerged as a trailblazing icon in the realm of Japanese art and design during the early 20th century, blending timeless motifs with avant-garde influences.

The captivating abstract artwork from this iconic magazine has been faithfully reproduced onto the pen's textured lacquer barrel, adorned in soothing pastel hues complemented by stonewashed pewter accents. Each pen is meticulously numbered on the top ring and adorned with the iconic Smithsonian sun logo, adding a touch of prestige to every stroke.

Step into the Smithsonian, a sprawling hub housing the world's largest repository of cultural treasures and knowledge. With a staggering array of approximately 154 million artefacts and specimens under its stewardship for the American people, it stands as an unparalleled museum, education, and research complex.

The Museums within this institution are dedicated to igniting curiosity, fostering discovery, and facilitating learning about the world through their exceptional collections, dynamic exhibitions, and educational outreach initiatives. Retro 51 takes great pride in crafting officially licensed writing instruments that draw inspiration from the rich tapestry of the Smithsonian collection.

Elegantly presented in a commemorative tube, the Smithsonian Bijutsukai pen is a true masterpiece that beckons to be held and admired as you craft your thoughts onto paper.
