Every year since 1992, the Writers Edition has paid homage to the world’s most famous authors, whose works have made a lasting impact on generations of readers and remain relevant to this day. The specific design and the fine details of each edition – including fountain pen, ballpoint pen, pencil and rollerball models – represent both a masterly homage to the life’s work of the writer honoured and a fascinating commitment to writing culture. Here we propose to you a range of the latest issues. We invite you to ask for any further informations or availability.
In connection with the annual “Montblanc de la Culture Arts Patronage Award”, which was established in 1992, Montblanc has issued a strictly Limited Edition fountain pen each year as a tribute to the most important patrons of art and culture in the past centuries, those whose personal commitment and achievements deserve wider recognition. Since 1992 these meticulously hand-crafted writing instruments have been made available in the spring of every year. They are limited to 4.810 pieces and in an even more precious Limited Edition of only 888 pieces. In the color photos section you will find a little list of the latest editions.

Classic M205 Demonstrator – visible inner strength
This special edition fountain pen is a masterpiece of technical
precision, giving a view directly onto the differential piston
mechanism, the heart of the fountain pen. Thanks to the
clear transparent barrel, you can see the interaction of the
sophisticated black-colored inner parts while operating the
ink handle. Being a close observer of the functional processes
inside, the Classic edition M205 Demonstrator persuades
by its precise and excellent quality. Equipped with a silvercolored,
high-polished steel-nib, it ensures a perfect ink flow
to the paper for a remarkable handwriting experience.

The pen will be available in mid May
Montegrappa, Italy’s oldest manufacturer of fine writing instruments, is proud of its heritage and has honoured all manner of Italian cultural touchstones, from grappa production to soccer to the Tricolore. With the contemporary classic, the Fortuna pen, as its base, Heartwood pays homage to that most Italian of values: a love of organic materials and the gifts of Mother Nature.
As Heartwood pens explore the relationship between man and nature, a precious link that must never be undervalued,it was immediately apparent that real wood should be the material of choice for barrel and cap. Joining the initial three versions of the Heartwood pen, chosen to represent the range and variety of woods that hold special appeal for the connoisseur and the aesthete, is another wood of deep importance and universal meaning.
As much as any wood with a special significance for the great tradition of Italian woodworking, olive wood also embodies the essence of the Mediterranean. Its colour complements the hues of the teak, pear and walnut Heartwood pens that launched the series. It is the heart of the tree that produces the fruit which defines the region’s diet, which accounts for its inhabitants’ health and longevity. More relevant in this era is the greatest historical and literary import of the olive branch: it stands for peace.
With its light, golden-brown colour and fine grain, the Heartwood in olive exudes both timelessness and modernity.
The natural olive tree wood used for the caps and barrels is complemented perfectly by trim in satin stainless steel,its cool hardness contrasting with the wood’s soft, organic textures.
As with the existing Heartwood pens, each one the beneficiary of Italian excellence in working wood for furnishings, in boats and musical instruments, the Heartwood Olive will be offered as a fountain pen, rollerball and ballpoint.
With one’s own personal olive branch always to hand, the newest Heartwood pen reminds us that – even in an age of wireless communications and high-tech materials – handwriting with instruments fashioned from elements provided by nature will always embody the finest qualities of humanity.
The Essence of Life!
The Meisterstück collection Le Petit Prince made in deep blue precious resin is inspired by the dark blue universe sky. The cap, milled with a fox face pattern, reveals a sentence from the Le Petit Prince book and is crowned with the iconic emblem.

The Collection is composed by many writing instruments: twist ballpoint,(available in two sizes,classique and midsize),rollerball (classique and Le grand), fountain pen(classique with piston/converter system or the piston filling Le Grand version). Each fountain pen is finished with a hand-crafted Au585 / 14 K bi-colour nib garnished with the Petit Prince and the fox.
A collection dedicated to all who wish to dream and to make those dreams come true by the use of a pen.
Happy writing to all of you…
From chemist to king of inks. Carl Hornemann had two significant
traits that characterized his undertakings: Scientific expertise
and a great deal of passion. Thus, he founded a paint and ink
factory that grew to become a company of great international
success. Pelikan is celebrating “180 years of passion” on April 28.
The demands placed on high-quality writing instruments are
very high. And justifiably so. For this reason, we place an
emphasis on sophisticated craftsmanship that works its way
into the finest detail. Each unique Pelikan piece reflects our
passion and skill – we make quality an experience. This is how
we have worked for 180 years – and this philosophy continues
to guide us every day.
The nib represents the beating heart of every fountain pen.
Thanks to genuine flair and decades of experience, our highlyqualified
employees produce pieces of fine gold with strong
character: A silver-plated gold nib with special engraving
crowns the “Spirit of 1838”. You notice it at first glance:
ink in this pen is also its lifeblood.
From Carl Hornemann to Günther Wagner and Fritz Beindorff.
Three successful businessmen with foresight and character.
In the first 60 years of Pelikan alone, they lay the foundations
for an aspiration that is still maintained today: A varied range,
the highest quality, and healthy growth. In the ‘Pelikan District’
of Hanover, the factory’s machines worked double shifts.
They were ready to move onto the international market.
Small stones with a dazzling effect. You can see that the famous
pelican in the cap is guarding its chicks, and if you look further,
you will also find that it has laid three radiant diamonds in its nest.
They are an allegory for the values of trust, reliability, and being
Made in Germany, all of which Pelikan takes very seriously.
A brilliant idea.
Our anniversary icon is an homage to the stylish creation that
has piqued boundless desire for decades: The Souverän with
a fine, pinstriped appearance. Our classic in a green and black
striped design is Pelikan’s brand ambassador and flagship.
These days it also charms the writer in an elegant silver
and black edition. A charismatic presence with a unique spirit. Each piece is unique. Each piece is also a favorite. Each piece
features an engraved edition number too. While that may sound
quite technical, it also means that there is an outstanding,
natural allure to these pens: The allure of exclusivity. Limited
editions create desire – the desire of owning one of the 180 pieces
created worldwide. One hundred and eighty is a small number,
yet the pleasure lasts a lifetime.
Classic elegance meets a premium finish. High-sheen silver
ornamentation decorates the cap, rings, and Pelikan clip on our
anniversary edition. The barrel also appears elegant with fine
sterling silver and soft guilloche. If you are lucky enough to call
this treasure your own, it will certainly be a special favorite in your collection.
SPIRIT OF 1838.
We will be having number 5 and 10. For those who wish to get it…..
This new collection of fountain pens, created in partnership with Delta, stems from one of my dearest wishes: bring together pen lovers and the most noble material in the history of writing instruments; the celluloid. Who among the pen enthusiasts has never dreamed of owning one? Today the difficulties of acquiring, storing and processing Celluloid makes it all the more expensive and exclusive. To achieve this fantasy of mine I turned to the only company with passion, patience and ability to translate these wishes into reality: the master crafsmen of Delta. With all the vast expertise and knowledge these aritisans gave birth to the first Corsani project: Fantasia Vintage! It is a collection of fountain pens sober,elegant and very limited. The beautiful selected colors, emphasized by the warm iridiscent tones that only the organic nature of celluloid can offer, create an emotion that evokes a past never forgotten. For all those seeking exclusivity, for those who take comfort and pleasure writing rather than testing or just only for those who love the contact with an object made by hand according to the dictates of the best Italian crafsmanship tradition !
All the writing instruments of the Fantasia Vintage collection are turned by hand from solid bars of special celluloid in six different shades enhanced by white rhodium plated or 18kt gold trimmings. Fantasia Vintage is offered exclusively as a fountain pen with steel nib and features Delta’s unique filling system, the “converter plus” that allows to fill the pen from the bottom simulating a piston. For those who would like to have a fusion nib the price will be € 395,00 and with a 14kt solid gold € 495,00. The central ring offers engraved representation of the charming and historic pattern, Greek Roman, obtained by the ancient goldsmith “lost wax” technique. Limited and numbered edition of 25 pieces per color : brown ( the only one with champagne gold trimmings), red/blue, turquoise, dark green, light green and bordeaux.
This new Pelikan Special Edition Souverän 600 pink is the perfect gift for your partner or the lady that has found way into your heart.

The clip and rings are 24kt gold plated. The fountain pen features a 14kt solid gold with rhodium trims that will be available in 4 widths (extra fine,fine,medium and broad ).
