Montblanc Writers Edition Antoine de Saint-Exupéry 1931 Fountain pen 116062
The Montblanc Writers Edition 2017 is dedicated to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (1900-1944).
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry was a French writer, poet, aristocrat, journalist, and pioneering aviator. He became a laureate of several of France's highest literary awards and also won the U.S. National Book Award. He is best remembered for his novella The Little Prince (Le Petit Prince) and for his lyrical aviation writings, including Wind, Sand and Stars and Night Flight.
The Montblanc Writers Edition Antoine de Saint-Exupéry 1931 is limited to 1931 pieces in reference to the year which marked the international consecration of Saint-Exupéry for his novel Vol de Nuit (Night Flight). Recalling the glass of the cockpit of Saint-Exupéry plane, the cap is adorned with a window revealing the nib. The metal with the retro coating on the barrel and the cap of the fountain pen gives it a brass characteristic of the 1930s. In remembrance of his talents as an illustrator, the engraving on the cap takes on one of his self-portraits, while his drawing of the Little Prince is reproduced on that of the barrel. The metal plate on the cap recalls the famous bracelet of Saint-Exupéry, found after the plane crash. For the first time on a Montblanc writing instrument, Super-Luminova has been applied under the mother-of-pearl emblem that crowns the pen. This technical innovation gives the Montblanc emblem a luminous brilliance, like the earth seen from the sky or the illuminated control panel of the cockpit of an airplane. The engraved star on the 18kt gold nib recalls his most famous novel, “The Little Prince” (Le Petit Prince).
The Montblanc Writers Edition Antoine de Saint-Exupéry includes a piston fountain pen, rollerball, ballpoint pen, and a three-piece set with fountain pen, ballpoint/rollerball and mechanical pencil.
