Lamy Vista Clear Rollerball Pen


Lamy Safari Vista

A cool fan of DTPW? gifted me a gently used Lamy Vista Clear Rollerball Pen, which was so totally awesome. Since it’s Lamy and a rollerball I didn’t expect there would be much variation in performance when compared to the Lamy Safari Rollerball Pen. In fact, based on a cursory examination it seemed the only difference between the Vista and the Safari is the Vista is clear, which you know is totally thrilling to me. I love anything that resembles Wonder Woman’s invisible plane! This pen is so fabulous and evocative of so many Superhero related things such as:

Magneto’s prison…

Fortress of Solitude…

And Wonder Woman’s invisible jet…

Back in May or June of 2011 this pen grew legs and walked away during an all day workshop I attended! I was so bummed. But I snagged another one (GREAT PRICE) at The Art Store in Syracuse. Wonderful, helpful staff and a tremendous supply of art supplies and office product goodies.

    So carrying that pen is like having your own portable superhero, or villain?

    The fact that you make any sort of connection between that pen and those superhero clear objects proves that you are some kind of genius. How do you think of these things?!

    The folks at the Art Store really are quite nice. I love that place.
