Every year, LAMY releases a special edition color of the popular AL-Star fountain pen. Each is produced for a limited time, and is sought after by collectors.

Here we’ll give you a visual look back at all of the annual special edition LAMY AL-Star fountain pens that have been available in the United States, at least as of 2011 when we first began carrying LAMY fountain pens.

2022: WhiteSilver 

WhiteSilver is a bright, glossy silver color, complemented by chrome trim and a silver nib.

2021: Azure and Cosmic

LAMY released two different colors of the AL-Star special edition for 2021.

Azure is a very light silvery blue, and Cosmic is more of a pale gold color.

There are several other special edition colors that preceded these, including the Silver-Blue, Coffee, and more, but we weren’t a LAMY retailer at the time these were produced. Yet somehow our own Brian Goulet has managed to get his hands on one of each! ;)
