You've arrived at the official website representing one of the world's premier & respected ballpoint pen artists:  Lennie Mace. This is the same website which until now appeared as a stock market ticker tape-like scroll. A consolidation of websites meant the scroll design had to be retired but its contents, a collection of some of Mace's most popular work, will soon reappear here as a slideshow.
