The latest Exclusive from Mann Inc was designed by Richard and Kim's eight year old son Thomas Mann. He came up with the idea and drew it on paper including the top disc for this great design. 350 Limited Edition Rollerballs are on sale right now and in June/July 150 matching Limited Edition Pencils will also be released for sale.
"I wanted to design a real Retro 51 pen, art is one of my favourite subjects at school, I always like chatting to Richard Koehler about the recent designs and have been thinking hard about what would look good. I am delighted Retro 51 liked this design and feel very proud it has been made into a real pen and pencil. I love nature and animals and thought it would be fun to have a design that could support a local wildlife charity and encourage pen collectors to make a insect hotel. A ladybird (ladybug) has a simple but fun pattern, I love the way it looks on a pen and pencil and hope the Retro 51 collectors will enjoy my idea." - Thomas Mann
