The edition has now taken a special place in the hearts of luxury writing culture aficionados. Each limited edition tells the tales of eras and peoples whose deeds shaped the development of humanity
The Pen of the Year 2023 is inspired by the culture, aesthetics and religious rites of Ancient Egypt.
