Has the addition of the Beatles catalog to iTunes spawned a new Beatlemania? Accessories maker Acme Studio has inked a new deal with Apple Records and The Beatles. The brand has already created pens, mirrors, business card cases and more that capture the style of Frank Lloyd Wright, Karim Rashid, Keith Haring, Shepard Fairey and Sue Wong. The new line will include pens, watches, business card cases and eyeglass cases. The first designs will be released in May 2011 with year pens evocative of each year the band was together (1962-1970) and 13 limited edition pen and business card case sets for all of their UK album covers. The priciests set is a set of four pens for four Beatles, consisting of interchangeable rollerball, felt tip, fountain pen, and ballpoint pens. This item is limited to 600 produced and sells at UnicaHome for $450.
