Kufi Art Limited Edition

in praise of oriental calligraphy

Caran d'Ache pays tribute to the ancient art of Arab calligraphy with Kufi Art, a Limited Edition that shows both oriental and modern influences, created in collaboration with the artist and designer, Shukor Yahya. This exceptional Limited Edition is available in two versions: Silver-plated, rhodium—coated and gold-plated. 101 fountain pens and 101 roller pens are produced in each version, a number that reflects the binary logic at the heart of the construction and complex symbolism of Kufi calligraphy. The noble ebony of the body is engraved with Kufi Art and the signature of the artist. Each carefully written word is hand coated in a lacquer whose rich golden or silver reflections echo the colouring of Byzantine art.
