Edison Nouveau Premiere Water Lily Spring 2016 SE Fountain Pen

The sun is shining here in Virginia. Trees are blossoming and the very first daffodils are sprouting up sunny yellow. It’s Spring, and what better way to celebrate the season than a new pen? We’re happy to announce the newest Edison Nouveau Premiere, Water Lily! Swirls of aqua and magenta create a serene and hypnotic combination while the smooth Edison nib will have you floating across the page. Let your writing bloom along with the season by adding this pen to your collection!

This is the 10th Seasonal Edition of our Edison Nouveau Premiere collection. We’ve had some memorable Spring editions (who could forget the Lilac or Cherry Blossom?), but this one is a particular favorite. While this acrylic color combination has been done before in different body types, this is the first Nouveau Premiere of this kind.

Edison Nouveau Premiere Water Lily Fountain Pen

Affectionately called the “unicorn barf pen” by the fountain pen community, this pen will only be available for about 3 months, or until supplies run out. This fountain pen comes in a gorgeous box with a standard international converter. The slightly translucent cast resin material shows the ink level (especially in eyedropper mode). It will be darker at the grip section because of the nib housing unit and the translucent material, and you might see ink in the grip, too, so don’t be alarmed.

The nibs are available with EF, F, M, B, 1.1mm, and 1.5mm stainless steel polished Edison nibs made by Jowo in Germany that are smooth with a hint of feedback. The nibs are interchangeable and additional ones are sold individually for $25. You can also upgrade to an 18k nib for an additional $125. Here is a video on Changing Edison Nibs, to help you swap them out.

Writing sample using the 10 optional fountain pen nib sizes from extra-fine steel to 18k broad.

    This may be the perfect pen, at least for me. I LOVE the colors, the patterns, really just everything about this pen. I’ve ordered one already, and can’t wait to hold that lovely creature! The look is just so tropical, so Caribbean IMHO. My absolute favorite! Brian Gray really hit a home run on this one!

    • Hi Kathy! I absolutely love this pen, too. It’s even more beautiful in person, if you can believe it. What ink do you think you’re going to fill it with first?? πŸ™‚

      • Kathy

        Gosh, that’s a tough decision. Probably Diamine Marine or Pilot Iroshizuku Tsut -suji. I’ve already inked my new Lamy 2000 with the new Pelikan ink, or I’d use that. Can’t wait to get this pen!!!

  • Jenn H.

    Dear unicorn barf,
    I love you.

    Seriously though, this pen is lovely!

    • Hey Jenn! Haha!! I can’t get over how that name caught on. So funny. Do you have one already or are you going to spring for this one?

      • Jenn H.

        Well, sadly it’s not in my budget at the moment, but I’m seriously considering how to wedge it in there! 😊

  • Kristen V.

    Ooh! It’s so pretty! But I’m sure if I bought it the poor pen would just sit unused… :'( This gorgeous pen deserves better than that!

    • Hi Kristen! This is a pen that definitely needs to be used. With a pen this pretty, how could you not want to use it? πŸ™‚

  • Mitchell Weinberg

    I have a previous edition, so not looking to buy another one anyway, but the colours and design of this pen do not appeal to me as a guy, and I wonder how other gents will feel. I agree the pen is nice to look at, but I gotta think Mr. Gray was intended a primarily female customer with this design.

    • Hey Mitchell! I can see how it might not appeal to everyone, but that’s why there is so much variety in the fountain pens we carry. There is something for everyone! What past Seasonal Edition was your favorite?

      • Mitchell Weinberg

        Agree, different pens for different tastes, nothing wrong with that. Fall 2015 is the one I have and very much like. Also have a Collier. Forgetting the aesthetics, Edison pens are quality products that write wonderfully, so I understand why they’re a popular mid to upper price point pen for folks to move into after the Safari or other <50$ pens.

        • Midnight Thunder was seriously gorgeous. I don’t know if I could pick a favorite… every time we have a new one, I fall in love. πŸ™‚

  • I S

    I want this one, but wasn’t going to get anything else until the Dark Lilac Lamy – do you think these will last until that one shows up? Or should I just get it now just in case…

    • Hey there! I think you should be good there. It may go in and out of stock as people order, so don’t despair if you go to the product page and it’s gone. As long as the page is up on our website, we’ll be ordering more. πŸ˜‰

      • I S

        Thanks, Madigan – I actually ended up ordering one yesterday anyway, because I couldn’t wait πŸ˜€

  • David

    Ugh, another Gurly Pen. Ink shows through in the section which destroys the theme. And the first picture on the Gouletpens Web site seems to show that cap doesn’t post squarely without adjustment. I’ll pass…

    • Hey there David! This is certainly a polarizing pen but we carry a wide selection of fountain pens so that everyone can find something they love. What is your favorite fountain pen? Have you used an Edison before?

  • Tora Aki

    It is a beautiful pen, I would totally use it.

    • Hey Tora! I couldn’t agree more with you. Do you have an Edison?

      • Tora Aki

        I don’t have one, yet.
        they are a bit out of my budget right now, but they are definetely in my wanted list. πŸ™‚

  • Denise

    by “limited in number” you mean there’s a specific number being produced? Not just that it’s time limited?

    • Hi Denise! With the Seasonal Editions, we’re at the mercy of amount of material available to make them. Some of the more popular models were gone at surprisingly fast rate. We try to make enough for it to last all season, but it’s a bit of a guessing game, as I’m sure you can imagine. I’m so jealous that you got one! I’m still kicking myself for not springing for the Autumn Harvest pen. I may just have to spring for this one as well… It’s just so pretty! What are you inking it up with first?

      • Denise

        I just got the new Pelikan Edelstein Aquamarine so it’s a tossup between that and Diamine Marine. i’m eagerly tracking the progress of my shipment for this pen! πŸ˜€

  • Denise

    and, btw, although I have always disliked the shape of the Edison Nouveau, I couldn’t resist these colors…

  • Shubhranshu

    It’s an interesting addition to the range… unexpected.. but certainly but fits right in…. keep it up Goulet Pens!

  • Uniotter

    Very cool colors, and very spring-like! If I was a fan of the Premiere shape, I would consider getting this pen. πŸ™‚

    • Hey Uniotter! I love the colors on this one, too. What Edison models do you prefer? πŸ™‚

      • Uniotter

        I tend to like the “flatter” caps myself, so the Beaumont, Collier or even the Pearlette are preferable. But it’s still a beautiful pen!

  • Cyriael

    I’m hoping to one day see a lime green/deep pink sort of combo, the coloring you’ll see a lot of lotus pictures in. That’s likely the only way a pink is getting into my pen case πŸ˜‰

    • Denise

      Gorgeous picture.

  • Mine

  • Mine will be arriving tomorrow! I cat wait! But I don’t know what to ink it up with yet. I already have a pen with soft mint, one with Rachmaninoff, and one with Baystate cape cod cranberry. I should have ordered an ink with it, but that would have been too smart and forward thinking. Lol

  • Natasha

    I only just discovered your store (through boho berry!) and I am very disappointed that I missed out on this. 😞
