Alexander Girard was one of the leadingfigures in American design during thepostwar era. While textile design was theprimary focus of Girard's oeuvre, he wasalso admired for his work in the graphicarts as well as furniture, exhibition andinterior design. Girard brought a sensuousplayfulness to twentieth-centurydesign that had been absent from theaustere aesthetic of classic modernism.

Since the earliest days of his youth,Girard was accustomed to taking awriting instrument along wherever hewent. He always carried one in the innerpocket of his tweed jacket, ready to jotdown a quick note or sketch out an idea.Moreover, he usually had some sort ofpaper on hand - very often notepadsfrom hotels where he had stayed. He liked their thin sheets and the practicaldimensions that fit in his trouser pockets,and eventually acquired a wholecollection of them. Whether with a shorttext in one of the seven languages Girardhad mastered or in the form of a drawing:he knew how to express himself with apen.

Together with Girard Studio and Vitra, Caran d'Ache introduces the Alexander Girard ballpoint Collection. Applying graphic patterns by AlexanderGirard to the refined silhouette, Caran d'Ache has created a timelessclassic writing instrument.
