Titel: Le Petit Prince II
Beitrag von: thisal am 30. März 2019, 08:24:00
Hello everyone, seen yesterday the Petit Prince to come in april. The standard version is quite deceiving, a plain resin in dark brown with no engraving this time and a sheep on the nib, but no aviator in sight athough it is the theme of the series! ; on the contrary, the doué and the solitaire versions are quite more attractive, with wavy patterns on metal (for the doué), and leather (for the solitaire). Ink wil be a dark brown, while the brown 146 fine stationnery notebook looks great!

Dear Thierry,

this new edition really looks nice ... but is a bit pricy ...

Well in fact they are at the same price as the first versions. There will also be a special set of two solitaires in a same box, but it is for later. The solitaire version is attractive to me, but as I said, Iam deceived by the plain resin Brown model, compared with the former blue one, with engravings on the cap… ;-)

Concerning the first version ... I like the dark blue colour but not all the engravings; and I fully agree the plain brown resin is highly tempting!

The Solitaire version looks great ... the problem with me though is that these Solitaire pens are often to heavy to write for a long time. But it's always a pleasure to look at them :-)

And now, here are the three versions of the PP.II notebooks. I let you look at some of the prices, because I'm afraid some people are gone crazy, in Hamburg…  :P

Dear Thierry,

wooow ... 255 Euro ... for a notebook!!! That's impressive. Honestly, I am not sure if these notebooks will be successful at that price point ....
