It is a literary adventure, parable, allegory, and classic tale of the Iberian Peninsula. It is numbered among the most loved and widely read books of all time. It is the “Most Translated Book by a Living Author”, according to the Guinness World Records. The Alchemist is also the name of an exceptional line of luxury fountain pens by the extraordinary craftspeople at Montegrappa.
Each luxury pen in the collection is crafted with the technique of wax casting, which had long been lost to modern writing instrument production. The seven metals of alchemy are included in the body of the watch. Sun and Moon decorations adorn the cap of the pens, along with artistry in the design that includes a special rotating mechanism evocative of winding a watch. Another timepiece-inspired element to the writing instruments is in the pocket clip: it opens like a compass.
“With the Alchemist pen, its owners can look forward to the experience of writing with an instrument whose symbolic voice encourages following one’s dreams. Paulo Coelho’s inspirational novel reminds us to search our hearts to find our personal treasure. The Alchemist pen has been conceived to relay a similar message as its ink flows onto the blank page,” according to Montegrappa. “To embody its spirit in a pen, the artisans of Montegrappa have fashioned a form that encompasses the myriad symbols embedded in the story.”
