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 made it 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.
The line-up includes quite a few models, including one each for the four main houses : Stark, Baratheon, Lannister and Targaryen.
LThe pens have palladium or yellow and rose 18k gold-plated rims. The pens have painless steel nibs, and ‘Game of Thrones’ engraved on the cap rings. The pens are both cartridge and converter-fed and available in writing grades of Extra Fine, Fine, Medium and Broad.
Check out the house pens, below :
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.”
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.”
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.”
Lannister: “For House Lannister, a regal red accented in contrasting yellow gold is the dominant color. 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.”
The pens are up for sale on the official website of Montegrappa. The fountain pens are priced at $261.99 (€ 245,00), the roller pens at $251.30 (€ 235,00), while the ballpoint pens go for $224.57 (€ 210,00).
