Mug Shots: Dark Ages

Clicking on any image here will take you to the page for that pen.  I’ve gathered them all in one place like this to give a sense of the shape of this era, which was somewhat eclectic, as nostalgia and sleekness were somewhat at odds in the consumer design world for at least the first half of the 1970s, and rather willing to work together in the 1980s.  On will also find some relatively attractive pens here; this age was extremely grim from a standpoint of overall sales for fountain pens but was not an end-to-end horror show as far as available models went.  For a description of the time, visit the History department.
