We've been covering a lot of cool astrology-related stuff lately. The simple, stylized glyphs work so well as design elements. Marlen's Astrologie fountain pen does more than display the zodicac signs; it also celebrates the history of astrology with a function that shows the planetary hours. A quick turn of the titanium sleeve shows off the planet glyphs associated with the day and hour. I'm not sure how useful this is in our modern age but it is certainly cool. The pen also has a blue titanium barrel and a sterling cap and 18K gold Astrologie fountain pen nib engraved with an strolabe design. The pen is limited to 488 pieces worldwide and has a list price of $3,000.
