Montblanc Writers Edition Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Ballpoint 116111
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 overall design and shape of the Montblanc Antoine de Saint-Exupéry is inspired by his iconic Caudron Simoun plane and his famous novel Vol de Nuit (Night Flight). Engravings on the deep night-blue resin barrel and cap show the sky as seen by Saint-Exupéry on the 1st of November 1929 at 23:00. As the director of the newly formed company Aeroposta Argentina S.A, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry conducted Aeroposta's inaugural flight on 1 November 1929, flying from an airfield at Villa Harding Green to Comodoro Rivadavia. The fittings are inspired by the cockpit of his plane. The geographic positions of important cities in Saint-Exupéry's life (i.e. Santiago du Chili, Buenos Aires, Toulouse Montaudran, Terre de Feu) are engraved on the cone.
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.
