Edison Nouveau Premiere Winter 2018 Special Edition Fountain Pens: Frost and Nightfall

Edison Nouveau Premiere Winter 2017 Special Edition Fountain Pens: Frost and Nightfall

Warm up the cold winter nights with the excitement of a new pen. Double the pen fun, the Goulet Pen Company is excited to announce not one, but TWO new seasonal collaborations with the Edison Pen Company. The Edison Nouveau Premiere Frost and Nightfall are two stunning and singular designs of a much-beloved pen model. The Nouveau Premiere Frost is a wonderful white, grey, and black flecked resin pen that is perfect for some winter writing. The Nouveau Premiere  Nightfall features a dappled blue and grey pattern. We’ve had a bit of difficulty in the past of keeping these seasonal editions in stock, often due to simply running out of material. By offering these two colors, it will allow us to produce more throughout the winter season.

The 17th and 18th editions respectively, Frost and Nightfall are next in the line of a very exciting collaboration between Goulet Pens and the Edison Pen Company of Milan, OH, where each pen is handmade. The gorgeous resin bodies of these pens can vary in pattern from pen to pen, making them unique snowflakes in the pen world. The resin construction also makes them ideal for eyedropper converting. Check out Brian’s video on how to complete that process here! You will also find a converter and ink cartridge packaged with the pens in their lovely pen boxes.

Edison Nouveau Premiere Winter 2017 Special Edition Fountain Pens: Frost and Nightfall

The Edison Nouveau Premiere uses a #6 nib. When ordering your Nouveau Premiere, you get to 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 $125. 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. Not sure how to go about swapping nibs? Check out Brian’s video!

Although one pen is light colored and one features dark hues, they both coordinate nicely with the three gorgeous inks in the Monteverde Boxed Set- Winter 2018. This set features Blue/Black, Smoke Noir, and Sapphire, each packaged in a 30ml bottle.

We did want to point out that the price for this edition is slightly higher, at $169 each. As announced recently on the Edison Pens blog, all of the production line Edison pens will be increasing in price at the start of the new year. As this is a 2018 model (though we are releasing it slightly early in time for the holidays!), it is launching at the new price. You can find all of the product specs and dimensions, as well as additional details, on the product page.

    What a surprise, two Winter editions of the Nouveau Premiere pens! And both breathtaking. What fantastic photos, here and on the product pages. Kudos to Sarah and Whitney. Kudos to everyone who chose these resins. My order was placed within 10 minutes of getting the email and looking at the blog posting. I should have it Friday at the latest! Oh, I chose the Nightfall, but the Frost is so lovely too. Just thought the Nightfall fit my Edison collection best. Wow, I’ll have 6 Edison and two Nouveau Premiere pens. What a Tuesday!

    • Sharon

      This will be my fourth Edison pen! I have one custom Glenmont, a previous Nouveau Premiere SE (last year’s winter edition, the Arctic Currents ebonite pen), and also recently picked up a Pearlette in one of the old production colors (dark indigo). I love them all very much.

      • Tom Johnson

        Sharon, I too got last year’s Arctic Currents and love it. I too have a custom Glenmont, the 2016 limited edition. And the old dark indigo Pearlette was a great color. I love my Sonoran Sunset Pearlette. I guess you are an Edison pen fan too!

        • Sharon

          Tom, we seem to have very similar taste in pens! My Glenmont is one that I ordered individually. The main material is their Aurora Borealis acrylic, which is a deep teal with chatoyance. The top of the cap and the section are both black acrylic.

          • Lydia At Goulet Pens

            That sounds out of this world! I love it!

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      Hooray, Tom! I was hoping you’d love the Nightfall! I think my Collier might be coming home to Connecticut with me in two weeks. I want to snag it before the price increases. Just have to wait a bit longer. What will you ink the Nightfall up with when you get it? What nib size did you get?

      • Tom Johnson

        Lydia, right now I’m thinking on inking it with General of the Armies. Either that or Liberty’s Elysium with a bit of Black to darken it just a tad. Which Collier are you getting, the Burnished Gold?

        • Lydia At Goulet Pens

          Great choices! You’ll have to let me know what you go with.

          Yes, the Burnished Gold Collier with a 1.5mm Stub sounds like the perfect way to cap off 2017.

  • David L.

    I was blown back when I saw that there would be two! Nightfall has to be my favorite, but Frost is also very nice. Still holding out for a blue one, though. 😉

  • Sharon

    Wow, these two pens are both gorgeous. I wasn’t planning to buy a new pen this month, but I snapped up one of the Nightfall pens within minutes of looking at the photos. This pen hits so many favorites for me: aqua and gray, chattoyance, silver furniture…so pretty. I can’t wait to see it in person.

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      Oh my! So happy to hear we were able to check off so many of your desired and favored boxes, Sharon! I think you will be quite pleased with it.

  • David

    The ink is going to show through the translucent section ruining the presentation of the pen. This is especially true of the “Frost” version. It’s interesting that none of the pictures in this blog post are of pens filled with ink. A coincidence? Or a deliberate omission to detract from this issue…

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      David, we would never try to deliberately mislead anyone about these pens. The translucence of the material is one of the best parts and I do believe that someone that picks up the Frost pen would be very pleased to have the chance to see their ink swirling around inside the body. That’s not a look for everyone, but one of the beautiful things about the Edison pens that we always highlight is their ability to be eyedropper converted and a draw for many people when doing that, is to see the ink inside. I think what you see as a flaw, will be exactly the thing many people love about that pens. I love the translucent section of my Premiere and being able to see the ink flowing into the feed. As I said, I’m sure it’s not for everyone though. That’s the beauty of fountain pens, they come in so many designs and colors and shapes, you’ll surely find one that suits you, even if others don’t.

      • David

        You said, “David, we would never try to deliberately mislead anyone about these pens.”

        Once again I must remind you about the Stipula Splash. Selling that pen was pure deception.

        • Kathy

          I beg to differ. GPC tried it and pulled it. That’s not deception. Mistake maybe, but not deception.

  • Kathy

    Oh, my goodness. These pens are both spectacular! Which to choose? One will be in my cart, but how do I choose? Coin toss! The photography is also wonderful, showing every great feature of these pens. Simply awesome! No unicorns here!

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      I would think Diamine Arctic Blue or Robert Oster Fire and Ice would be good ones. Congrats on an exciting new pen!

  • Angel

    Wow. Great idea to have two Winter Editions. Are there plans to start having two each season?? 🙂 Both of these are gorgeous pens, and beautifully photographed. Nightfall is particularly striking.

    • Tom Johnson

      Angel, it is a subtle plot to confuse us as we try to decide which one to get. I think Goulet should have a “Surprise Me” button so you won’t know which pen you bought until you open your order.

      • Angel

        Haha, I think you’re right!! I’d be very tempted to pick up Nightfall, but I just placed an order for a Platinum Century 3776. 🙂 A Nouveau Premiere is on my someday wish list! I was looking at the Collier Blue Steel – I love the color – but I think it’d be a little big.

        • Tom Johnson

          Oooo, you are going to love your 3776. Mine is such a wonderful pen to write with, it really is a great pen. Let us know how you like yours. Which color did you order?

          • Angel

            I had such a hard time deciding between the Bourgogne and Chartres Blue!! Then I told myself it’s more of a matter of which I’m getting first. 😉 I finally chose the Chartres Blue in Fine. It’ll be here tomorrow, but it’s for Christmas. I can’t wait to try it!!

          • Lydia At Goulet Pens

            I hope it brings you a ton of joy! It’s a beautiful pen!

          • Angel

            Thanks, Lydia!! I’m sure it will. 🙂

          • Tom Johnson

            You will love it when it comes. When I decided to get a 3776 I had to choose between the Bourgogne and the the Chartres Blue. Both are wonderful. I got the Bourgogne but would be just as happy with the Blue. We really have tough choices to make when we select some of these pens.

          • Angel

            I know, it can be really hard to choose!! The Bourgogne is a gorgeous pen, too.

      • Lydia At Goulet Pens

        Oh my! You do like to live on the thrilling side, Tom! That would be too much excitement for me. But I could definitely see it being fun for others!

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      Hopefully, having two will allow for more opportunities for people to snag one 🙂 I’m not sure if this will be an ongoing thing but it’s certainly fun to see two gorgeous pens this season.

      • Angel

        That makes sense – they sell out so quickly. It’s definitely a great idea.

  • Julia Traver

    OOOH……I believe I need the Frost for my collection!

    • Tom Johnson

      Julia, it was hard deciding which one to get, both are so lovely.

  • pepperpath

    I ordered the FROST a few days ago! It’s been a year since I ordered a pen: the last one was the Edison Arctic Currents ebonite. This is my fifth Edison so I guess it’s clear that I love Edison pens! And love the fact that it’s translucent too.

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      How great! Glad to hear you will be adding another beauty to your collection.

  • Scott Rogers

    Lovely! I think there may be a Nightfall in my future. But a question, maybe a request: Is there a page on the Goulet web space that collects and displays the whole Edison Nouveau Premiere seasonal collection? Once an edition is sold out, it disappears from the online store, and the new edition blog posts make for scattered searching (and that search yields a set of individual announcement pages, not a single collection).

    • Tom Johnson

      I would love to be able to see all of the collection on one page too, Scott.

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      There is a full line picture at the bottom of this blog, that includes all the pens through last winter’s premiere: https://blog.gouletpens.com/2017/01/edison-nouveau-premiere-old-new We try not to post too many pictures of pens we don’t have in stock though as it tends to just make people sad that they can no longer get that pens, if that makes sense. Hope you love the nightfall when you get it.
