MONTEGRAPPA BRAIN LIMITED EDITION GOLD FOUNTAIN PEN MEDIUM - Model: ISBNN_GE
LIMITED TO 50 PIECES

Working with Dr. Richard Restak, M.D., Montegrappa is proud to announce one of the most ambitious pens in its illustrious history. He has to date written 20 books on various aspects of the human brain; two were on The New York Times Best Sellers List. His first bestseller, The Brain (1984), was also the first companion book he wrote for a PBS series. The Mind (1988) was another PBS companion book and was his second bestseller. He has written articles for various national newspapers and has appeared on radio and television programs.He has penned dozens of articles for national newspapers including: The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, USA Today, and The Huffington Post. He has contributed brain and neuroscience-related entries for the Encyclopædia Britannica and the Encyclopedia of Neuroscience.
To create a pen that represents the complexities of the very organ it celebrates, Montegrappa's designers drew inspiration from the brain itself. The link between the brain and the pen, with the act and art of writing serving as an extension of man's ability to express himself while exercising the brain itself, encouraged Montegrappa to illustrate this direct intellectual and physical connection.
Emblematic of this is the contrast present in the pen's most basic structural elements: the top part of the pen is rich and elaborate, while the body is simple, acting as a parallel to a man's body, where all his riches are in the brain.
Adorning the top of cap is a cross-section of the brain, based on an ancient illustration. The cap features an overlay made up of neurons, with the pocket clip representing the spinal cord. The clip has a spring-loaded mechanism and its tip is lacquered in red or black, to differentiate the fountain pen from the roller ball.
Etched into the nib is the image of a sea-horse. This refers to the hippocampus, which is a major component of the brain of humans and other vertebrates. It belongs to the limbic system and plays an important role in the consolidation of information from short-term memory to long-term memory and spatial navigation.
The Brain Pen is offered as a limited edition consisting of 1012 silver fountain pens, a quantity representing the number of neurons in the human brain, which are estimated to be between 10 raised to the 12th power or 10 raised to the 13th power;
