The exquisite Graf von Faber-Castell Pen of the Year collections began in 2003 and has established a firm place among the connoisseurs and collectors of fine writing culture. These exclusive writing implements appear in limited editions and present unusual materials fashioned by hand with great skill. Each Pen of the Year tells a story of an epoch and people whose deeds made a strong impression on the history of mankind. This year it centres on the Imperium Romanum.

The legendary founding of Rome in 753 BC is the start of a rise unparalleled in the ancient world. Even today, in the early 3rd millennium, the great rulers, magnificent buildings and historic cultural achievements continue to fascinate time and again.
