An icon of writing culture, the Montblanc Meisterstück is a gifting favourite among Montblanc products, a precious treasure passed down from one generation to another. As it is handed to the next generation so are the stories, ideas and memories that the writing instrument carries with it making it a powerful symbol of love, education and the lasting bonds that unite generations. To celebrate the power of imagination and the importance of transmitting ideas and values to the ones we love, Montblanc released a special edition Meisterstück inspired by the much-loved literary character of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s Le Petit Prince. One of the world’s most translated books with editions in more than 250 languages and dialects, the allegorical story about the chance encounter between a pilot and a little prince from a distant planet explores the universal themes of imagination, open-mindedness and the value of human relationships. With design elements based on Saint-Exupéry’s sensitive hand-drawn illustrations, the Meisterstück Le Petit Prince captures the book’s simple message that transmitting one’s dreams and values to others is what makes one’s life meaningful.
The Meisterstück Le Petit Prince edition features the inspiring and tender characters of the young prince and the fox who enlightens him about the importance of close bonds and human relationships, revealing the core wisdom learned from his own life’s experiences. Subsequent editions will highlight other characters from Le Petit Prince and the powerful messages they carry including the aviator and the planet. The story of the little prince beautifully illustrates the power of the art of writing. The words and drawings of Saint-Exupéry have touched hearts and minds around the world and across generations.
The fox pattern, a reference to the character that instructs the young boy about the bonds of human relationships, covers both the cap and barrel of the Meisterstück Le Petit Prince Solitaire edition, engraved on the deep blue lacquer. Contrasting with the blue, the fittings are crafted from platinum-coated metal. Before travelling back to his asteroid, the little prince tells the pilot he will be able to hear his laugh any time simply by looking at the stars and remembering. As a reminder of the laughter in the stars, a golden star adorns the clip of this edition. At the summit of the edition, the Montblanc emblem is encircled by the fox’s words about human bonds, taken from St Exupéry’s novel: “Créer des liens? ... Tu seras pour moi unique au monde” (“To establish ties? ... To me, you will be unique in all the world.”).
The fountain pen uses a piston filling mechanism. The delicate character of Le Petit Prince is immortalised along with his friend the fox, engraved on the handcrafted 18K gold bicolor nib.
