Book review: The Peshwa – War of the Deceivers
Montegrappa Makes Play for the Iron Throne with New Line of ‘Game of Thrones’ Pens. With its epic storylines of treachery and nobility, family and honor, ambition and love, and death and survival, the hit HBO series Game of Thrones has captured the imagination of fans globally and has become one of the most popular shows on television. Montegrappa is proud to announce a series of writing instruments that convey the grandeur of this most remarkable saga.
Montegrappa’s collection of writing instruments represent each of the four key families: Stark, Baratheon, Lannister and Targaryen. Each is available as a fountain pen, rollerball pen and a ballpoint pen. The desirability of the pens is enhanced by a collective style. Each pen is individualized for the family it represents through sigils and emblems representative of the clan.
All barrels and caps are made with colourful lacquered surfaces, while the trims are fashioned of palladium, 18k gold or bronze plate, with “Game of Thrones” engraved on the cap ring. All of the fountain pens’ nibs are formed in stainless steel, decorated with a sword, and are available in the four writing grades: Extra Fine, Fine, Medium and Broad. The fountain pen is both cartridge and converter-fed.
Montegrappa’s Game of Thrones pens arrive in a double box consisting of a rich black outer carton bearing each family’s symbol. The inner box is covered in material evoking the styles of the historical period that inspired Game of Thrones, with sigils and patterns relevant to the four families.
Baratheon: Coloured a sombre charcoal, but accented in contrasting yellow gold, the House Baratheon pen features a stag’s head for its pocket clip, with a stag rampant on the cap’s top, above the motto, “Our Is The Fury”. A fleur-de-lis pattern decorates the cap.
Lannister: For House Lannister, a regal red accented in contrasting yellow gold is the dominant colour. The House Lannister pen features a lion’s head for its pocket clip, and a lion rampant on the cap’s top, above the motto, “Hear Me Roar”. A floral pattern, reminiscent of the Tudor Rose, decorates the cap.
Stark: With House Stark’s northern origins, the colour chosen for the family’s pen is a silvery- white, accented in palladium, conveying winter. The cap is patterned with a runic symbol reminiscent of Norse artistry. A direwolf’s head forms the pocket clip, while the top of the cap shows the direwolf’s profile, above the motto, “Winter Is Coming.”
Targaryen: Only a fiery, metallic red against a coal-black background could represent House Targaryen. Naturally, a dragon’s head forms the pocket clip, while a dragon coils above the legend, “Fire and Blood”, on the cap’s top. A filigree pattern graces the cap.
Future plans for the series include deluxe limited editions.
