PelikanTHE PELIKAN COMPANY was founded 1838 in Hanover, Germany. In 1929 Pelikan introduced the black-and-green-striped fountain pen. The Graphos Indian ink fountain pen and the Plaka paints were introduced in the 1930s.

Pelikan Drawing Ink THE RUSSIAN ARTIST El Lissitzky (1890-1941) was one of the great avant-garde figures of the early twentieth century. He became seriously ill with tuberculosis in 1923 and went to Switzerland for treatment. During his convalescence, he supplemented his income by designing typographic and photographic advertisements for Pelikan. Kurt Schwitters, who was living in Hanover and working for Pelikan, probably introduced Lissitzky to the firm. Several of Lissitzky's advertising designs are displayed in the web exhibition "Monuments of the Future": Designs by El Lissitzky at the Getty Research Institute.
