Angelika Unverhau of Dinslaken, Germany, is the proud owner/curator of the world’s largest ballpoint pen collection. The collection boasts an incredible 220,000 ballpoint pens (none of them duplicates) from 146 countries. She had collected pens since childhood but began collecting seriously in 1990.
Angelika has founded a club for ballpoint pen enthusiasts. The members meet biannually to trade pens (and laughter, no doubt).
