Visconti launches the new special edition of Van Gogh's "The Novel Reader", a work characterised by its intense colours created in November 1888. The fountain pen has a personalised nib with Van Gogh's signature. Behind what at first glance might appear to be simply a young woman reading a book, lies a truly revolutionary message. The yellow colour of the book's cover indicates that it is in fact a modern novel, acceptable reading for a man, but unacceptable for a woman.
The set includes a dedicated ink for the fountain pen version and a practical marker for the rollerball and ballpoint versions.
