Fontoplumo is at it once again, this time with another beautiful exclusive in collaboration with Leonardo Officina Italiana.

The Leonardo Momento Zero Yellow Brick Road is a classically designed fountain pen, featuring a bright resin barrel, steel nib, and a cartridge/converter filling system (converter included).

This color is a limited edition, exclusively for Fontoplumo.

The Yellow Brick Road means, to us, a road to happiness and good fortune. The pen is made in an elegant, muted yellow and fits the Momento Zero model ideally. Classical with a hint of joy.

The Leonardo Momento Zero Yellow Brick Road is available in three versions:

Yellow Brick Road with silver pebbles (chrome trim), limited to 15 pieces.

Yellow Brick Road, with golden pebbles (gold plated trim), limited to 15 pieces.

Yellow Brick Road, by Night (ruthenium trim), limited to 5 pieces.

The Yellow Brick Road pen will be supplied in the Leonardo gift case, including a special sleeve for this edition.

My thanks to Fontoplumo for sponsoring The Pen Addict this week.

This is a bit of a throwback review. When I first started the blog, the handwritten portion of the review was key. I wanted to be sure to show the ink and paper in action. For my Elemental Paper review, I wanted to direct my focus on ink and paper because there have been issues with some of the notebooks.

I had no issues using my wettest fountain pens on the page. No bleed, feathering, or ghosting to speak of. Kelli had the exact opposite experience. I can only review the product I have in hand, and mine is great. If I had Kelli's, it would be terrible - at least for fountain pens.

I linked to the original full-sized images above so you can get an up close look if you are interested. Pictures are worth 1000 words in this case.

(Disclosure: This notebook was my backer reward from the Kickstarter project, which I paid full price for.)
