Bronze is the new AL-star from LAMY

Bronze has come and gone, but now is back with the new 2019 Special Edition AL-star Bronze from Lamy - this is the colour we are talking about as the pen is still made from anodised aluminium.  Other features include polished steel nib, semi-translucent front nib section and polished steel clip.  This new Special Edition from Lamy is sure to go down well with pen collectors, Lamy aficionados and any budding writer.  

Its over 5000 years since the BRONZE AGE (actually 3200BC, when man mixed tin and copper together to create bronze alloy) but something else happened during this period of our evolution, namely, the start of written communication.  Cuneiform (meaning wedge-shape tool) was best recorded in the Fertile Crescent, Egypt were the Sumerians used the wedge shaped tool to press into soft clay to record their daily activities.  Examples of these tablets, as they became known, can still be seen at The British Museum in London, England.
