STORY
 
fountain pen history

     "Unlike any pen in this world... or any other"

     "A pen from Outer Space"

That was the slogan for the Parker advertising campaign launched in 1956, to introduce its newest and most revolutionary fountain pen. The pen was the striking new Parker 61. It was Parker's ambitious entry in the 'no-mess filling' competition. According to Parker's advertising, it took years of work by a research teamof 50 people to develop the amazing 61, the first fountain pen that actually fills itself by itself, requiring no action from the user. The pen has no button, no lever, no plunger, no squeeze bar, and no cartridge or converter. The pen sucks up a fill by capillary action.
