The results of our 'Special Edition Stationery of the Year 2016' competiton
We recently ran a competition to win some now-unavailable special edition stationery. To enter you had to vote for your favourite special or limited edition item of stationery which we had featured during 2016. There was a surprisingly long list drawn up, of 16 items. And when the competition had closed we were left with a nice little table from 1 to 16 which I thought made for interesting reading. Interesting enough that it was worth sharing with everyone, so here it is.
No.1 – Lamy Safari Dark Lilac Fountain Pen
Perhaps no surprise that this should win – the clamour for a purple Safari pen had been building for years, online forums had championed it, petitions demanded one. So when Lamy announced that 2016 would be the year the Safari went purple…well, it sold! So well that it has long since sold out and we can’t offer any for you to buy now. You can get get the Safari in 8 other colours but if purple is your thing you’ll be disappointed.
