La Maison Du Porte Plume is a vintage poster for fountain pens and inks by the artist Jean Dylen. He uses the whimsical central figure to capture our attention and then uses the fine detail of the pens and the ink bottles to let us know what products the store sells. Even though the image was created over 85 years ago, the store is still in existence.

Jean Dylen (1886 - 1938) was trained in the art of designing jewelry and was recruited by the Vercasson Printing Company to be the understudy to Leonetto Cappiello, their top designer of posters. When Cappiello left Vercasson, Dylen assumed the role of top designer. He was a master of combining humorous messages with well executed artwork and masterful colors to create some of the most sought after posters printed in the 1920's.
