The newest addition to the Officially Licensed Smithsonian Collection is Bijutsukai. This Tornado™ Rollerball pen's art comes from the Smithsonian Libraries and Archives featuring art from Shin-Bijutsukai magazine published from 1901 to 1906. Originating from the early Japanese pattern books of the 1660s, the magazine's colorful and abstract designs reflected historical and technological shifts in Japanese society, influenced by Art Nouveau and Japonisme - the Western European fondness for a mediated, Japanese aesthetic. Through its visually striking designs, Shin-Bijutsukaishowcased a blend of timeless themes and innovative influences, positioning itself as a pioneering force in Japanese art and design during the early 20th century.

The abstract art from this magazine has been reproduced onto the textured lacquer barrel in refreshing pastel tones complete with stonewashed pewter accents. Each pen has been numbered on the top ring and finished with the Smithsonian sun logo. Finally, they are loaded into a commemorative tube that makes for a beautiful presentation. Showcase this work of art in hand when you're writing with the Smithsonian Bijutsukai.
