Montblanc Writers Edition Rudyard Kipling Fountain pen 119849
The Montblanc Writers Edition 2019 is dedicated to Rudyard Kipling.
Rudyard Kipling (1865 - 1936) was an English journalist, short-story writer, poet, and novelist. He was born in India, which inspired much of his work. He is most famous for ''The Jungle Book (1894)'', If (1895) and Kim (1901). He is regarded as a major innovator in the art of the short story. Kipling was one of the most popular writers in the United Kingdom in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Henry James said: ''Kipling strikes me personally as the most complete man of genius, as distinct from fine intelligence, that I have ever known.''
The Montblanc Writers Edition takes its main inspiration from Kipling's "The Jungle Book". The overall shape is inspired by the Ankus of ''the King's Ankus'' story from the second jungle book. The ''jungle'' green colour is inspired by the cover of the book's first U.S. edition, with the clip taking inspiration from the wolf pack. The cap is engraved with Kipling's handwritten initials R.K. The beginning and end of the poem "If" is engraved on the cap top and cone ring. The 18kt gold rhodium-coated nib is decorated with a fine engraving of a globe, which Kipling collected in his office and reminds us of Kipling as a globetrotter.
The Montblanc Writers Edition Rudyard Kipling collection includes a piston fountain pen, rollerball, and ballpoint pen.
