Edison Nouveau Premiere Fall 2017 Special Edition Fountain Pen: Bonfire

 

Watch your inspiration burn up the pages like a campfire from the moment you pick up the latest Edison Nouveau Premiere seasonal edition. Each year, Goulet Pens and Edison Pen Co. collaborate to bring you four seasonal edition pens that are only available for a short window of time. This year’s fall edition, the 16th in the series, is a hot one for sure. Aptly named Bonfire, this stunner features licks of black and orange that dance across and throughout the body and cap of this acrylic pen. You’ll instantly envision a crackling fire against a perfect autumn night when you gaze upon this pen.

These pens are handmade in Milan. Ohio, by Edison Pen Co. As the resin can vary from pen to pen, each piece is a completely unique pattern and has its own distinct appearance. Because of the slightly translucent nature of the acrylic, these pens also make fascinating eyedropper pens. Imagine watching a nice dark ink swishing and swirling behind the orange sides of this pen! You can easily convert it with a bit of silicone grease and with this easy video on how to eyedropper a pen, you can do it in a flash! The pen also comes with a standard international converter if you prefer to fill from your ink bottles and is compatible with standard international cartridges. The charming pen box it comes packaged in provides a safe and stylish place to store your Premiere.

The Edison Nouveau Premiere uses a #6 nib. When placing your order, you can take your pick of a smooth writing Edison steel nib in EF, F, M, B, 1.1mm, and 1.5mm Stub. You can also upgrade to an 18kt Rhodium-plated gold nib for an additional $150. Want more than one nib size to try out? Replacement steel nibs are available for $25 in EF, F, M, B, 1.1mm, and 1.5mm Stub. Brian describes the Edison nibs as smooth-writing with a nice flow and just a hint of feedback. Not sure how to go about swapping nibs? Check out Brian’s video!

    OOOOH, such a rich vibrant Autumn resin, magnificent, a wonderful seasonal edition. Edison has so many rich colors, if I made a list of favorites it would probably end up including a dozen or more colors. In general I love the translucent acrylics with a depth to them, like this one, and the resins with pearlescence and chatoyance coming from the interior. This is an edition that will go fast, not the pen to hesitate on. I keep looking at these wonderful photos and the resin seems like it was made from an orange opal gemstone. All Edison pens are beautifully crafted, perfectly fitted and finished, and my four pens (and six nibs) are wonderful writers. I can smell the smoke from the “…crackling fire against a perfect autumn night…” when I look at these photos. The Edison Nouveau Premiere is one of my all time favorite pens, I used mine for the latest Monday Matchup.

      It’s so interesting how you just seem to fall more in love with Edison as a whole the more you look at the beautiful pens Brian Gray and his team create, isn’t it, Tom?

      • Tom Johnson

        So true Lydia, their selection of materials is overwhelming, but I know how wonderful their pens are from my four. And also every time I use one of them too.

  • David L.

    OOOOOOO!!! This is such a great pen! This is perfect for Fall. It does look so much like a fire. We recently had one on the first. It seemed fitting, as it was nice and cool with a gentle breeze. Sadly, I do not think I can quite bring myself to spend that much on a pen. If I could, this would be the one.

    I do not think that I could answer the question without visiting Brian Gray’s website. I’ll come back with an answer shortly. 🙂

    • David L.

      I think that a Nouveau Premiere in Green Ebonite would look great! Maybe as a Spring LE?

      • Lydia At Goulet Pens

        That would be a gorgeous choice!

      • Tom Johnson

        Me too David.

  • Orange and black is too Halloween-y, and I’ve never liked Halloween. Maybe if it were orange and rust, orange and dark red, or even orange/red and brown, it would feel more like fall.

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      The color combination is not for everyone 🙂 Just one less pen you have to collect, right? Saves room in your collection for another pen 😉

      • True. I was holding out I’d be able to get a new Edison. Maybe next season!

        • Lydia At Goulet Pens

          Fingers crossed next season is more your style!

  • Stephanie Walters

    My Halloween-loving self is FREAKING OUT about this beauty. I love the Edisons I have so far, and this will be my first Edison stub nib, so I am quite excited.

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      Hope you love it!

  • pepperpath

    there’s a list of about 20 I’d love to see but here are four: Sonoran Sunset, Amber Swirl Acrylic, Cardinal Swirl, Canyon Trail! Love my Edison pens!

    • Tom Johnson
      • David L.

        Tom, you’re tempting me! I think I’m almost to the breaking point to where I will buy one!

      • CatherineK

        Which one is this? Lovely!

        • Tom Johnson

          The Edison Sonoran Sunset Pearlette. This is one of the 3 choices for the production Pearlette pens now. Canyon Trail is another one.

          • CatrinK

            Beautiful – and it doesn’t really look like the stock picture of the Sonoran Sunset on the Goulet site – unless it’s just my monitor. I love this – I’ve put off buying one as I’m afraid the grip may be too small for my arthritic hands. Do you have other Edisons, does it really seem much smaller?

          • Tom Johnson

            I took this photo on my porch on a very bright day, in the shade but with sunlight behind me. It probably emphasizes the highlights of the resin, plus I can’t control color balance like Sarah can for her photos. Here is a comparison with three other pens.

            Top down: Metropolitan, Beaumont, Pearlette, and Collier. The Pearlette is a bit wider than the Metropolitan.

          • Lydia At Goulet Pens

            Great comparison, Tom!

      • pepperpath

        Beautiful!
        (the only problem for me is the Pearlette takes a #5 nib and I love to interchange my #6 nibs! ) I guess I can only hope or get a custom Herald which is my favourite pen!

        • Tom Johnson

          When I bought this Pearlette I asked Brian Gray about getting a Collier in Sonoran Sunset and he said he would make it for me. But, that is a custom pen and I can get two of the production Edison pens for about the same cost. And I already have one Collier. So I decided to wait and see what future Nouveau Premiere pens show up.

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      Great choices 🙂

  • CatherineK

    I was planning on getting the seasonal, but…I can see the attraction for those who like the colors, but this is a color combination that is too intrusive and screams Halloween. That’s fine, that means someone else can buy the one I was going to purchase, though I seem to like it a little better each time I see it.

    As far as what I would like to see in a Premier? The Sonoran Sunset, for one – LOVE that. Of course, for a seasonal you probably don’t want to duplicate the color from another model. I think a rich teal and purple would be lovely but it would be tricky to get the right colors for both. Gold and black or red and black are always both nice. A Southwestern sage green and southwestern orange would also be lovely I think.

    • CatrinK

      As far as the gold and black I mentioned, really I meant black with a thin line of gold shot through the acrylic. It would be striking without being overwhelming.

      • Tom Johnson

        Sounds like this gold and black would make a very striking acrylic. I have a weak spot for pens that look very subdued until you gaze into them closely and the closeup details become special.

  • Sharon

    I really wish I had gotten the Fireball (pearlescent red) Nouveau Premiere that was a Holiday Season special edition a few years ago. I would love to see another red one! I would totally go for a pearlescent grassy green, too.

  • KarenS_923

    The colors in this season’s Premiere are very striking, and my pen is on its way. 🙂

    However, I’m hoping that one of these Autumns (my favorite season!) we’ll see a color combination that reflects the changing leaves: some combination of toast (light brown), orange/burnt orange, red, and yellow. That would be lovely with the right distribution of color.

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      That would be gorgeous! Great suggestion! Hope you love your new pen.

    • Tom Johnson

      I think your suggestion is great.

    Whoops wrong button… I’ve been using fountain pen for about a couple months now and I’m hooked. Can’t go back to roller balls now. So I decided to make the plung and get this beautiful thing. I’ll be here on Monday I’ll write an review about it once I get my pen.

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      Hope you love it!

  • Kathy

    I agree with Karen S below. I’d love to see a fall edition in the colors of the changing leaves…that would be awesome. I think Bonfire is attractive, but it’s too much Halloween for me. I’m sure the winter edition will be tugging at me though!

  • Gorgeous fall colours. And if you want your pen to stand out at a work meeting, that’s a good one. Overall I think I prefer the translucent Menlo in blue though.
