Pionierska monografia w Polsce poświęcona wiecznym piórom, a także jedna z pierwszych publikacji w literaturze światowej odnoszących się do społecznych i kulturowych funkcji designu przyborów piśmienniczych. Autor przedstawił w niej sposób, w jaki przemiany cywilizacyjne dokonujące się w XX stuleciu wpływały na rozwój tych fascynujących przedmiotów i odwrotnie – jak ewolucja wiecznych piór oddziaływała na styl życia piszących nimi ludzi.

It is a pioneering monograph on writing instruments in Poland, as well as one of the first books in the world literature devoted to the social and cultural functions of fountain pen design in the history of the 20th century. The book presents how the civilizational changes taking place in the world at that time influenced the development of these instruments and how their evolution in turn influenced the lifestyle of the people writing with them. This view allows us to show the creative function of design in creating social relations in which the shape of the human world became involved, subjected to enormous pressure of techno-logical, economic and cultural challenges at that time. The book is dedicated to everyone who wants to broaden their understanding of the world with a new, surprising point of view, which creates a reflection on the role that foun-tain pens played in the experience of the last century. It is intended for readers who in their relations with objects see today the important context of everyday life, as well as inspiration to reflect on the truth of things. I am convinced that designers, culture scholars, historians, sociologists, design researchers, as well as literary scholars and literature critics can useful-ly use Design of the blot. I think this book will also be interesting reading for those who are still writing with fountain pens and feel an emotional connection with them. Among them is the rapidly growing group of collectors in Poland and in the world who have so far used mainly foreign literature and the Internet.
