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. We invite all our visitors to kindly ask for any further information or availability.
Mont Blanc celebrates in its Great Character special collection, a cult movie star that most of all has personified the youth ideals of freedom and rebellion.
James Byron Dean (1931 – 1955) was an American actor and a cultural icon of teenage disillusionment and social estrangement, as exemplified by the title of his most celebrated film, “Rebel Without a Cause” (1955), in which he starred as troubled teenager Jim Stark. This edition features a red precious resin cap and barrel in reference to the red leather jacket worn by Dean in the film, while the pattern is inspired by the jeans he wore. The clip is a gun which pays tribute to his famous scene in the 1956 film “Giant”. The cap ring is engraved with one of James Dean’s most famous quotes: “Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die today.” The cone features an engraving of the coordinates of the James Dean Memorial.
In an elegant box of the traditional Pineider green color, here comes a set of inks that will allow your imagination to create an exclusive and personalized shade. It consists of five drop-shaped crystal flasks containing primary colors and as many empty containers to create the new ink colors. The set is equipped with a snorkel that allows you to vacuum up to the last drop without having to immerse the nib, a small travel inkwell and a color chart where the exact doses are shown to get a new shade.
A perfect gift for a fan of fountain pens, especially near the Christmas holidays.

Piston Fountain Pen
18 K gold ruthenium-coated nib
A company born just before the First World War, Montegrappa is especially sensitive to the significance of that great conflict. The company’s home region of Northern Italy was engulfed by it, while Montegrappa’s pens were part of the materiel, which participated in the confrontation and recorded the saga. No less than the great Ernest Hemingway used a Montegrappa pen during his war-time exploits as an ambulance driver for the Red Cross in Northern Italy, as did John Dos Passos.
2018 marks a century since the end of the war, an anniversary that is being observed in every country embroiled in the campaign. For Montegrappa, the occasion is particularly moving, for it knows that soldiers sent hand-written missives from the front to their loved ones back home, many using Montegrappa pens. And their billets-doux would open with “My darling…”
In Italian, the greeting changes to “Mia Carissima”, the name chosen for the commemorative pen produced to remind us of what our forebears endured 100 years ago. Beyond its most apparent experiences of – and direct connections to – the First World War, Montegrappa, too, wishes to dedicate the Mia Carissima Limited Edition of only 100 pens as a dramatic tribute to the three battles conducted in our beloved region and hometown.
Mia Carissima is fashioned from shiny Malachite Green resin with black accents and Sterling Silver trim. It is a reinterpretation of an historic Elmo pen that was available a century ago and originally produced entirely in ebonite. The new pen possesses a voluptuous form that presents a “simple” silhouette, a shape that fits perfectly in the hand.
Recalling the design languages of a century ago, the signature clip reflects and is strongly influenced by past fashion. Slightly fan-shaped, it features a design with linear etching that epitomises the earliest awakenings of what would become Art Deco. Mia Carissima’s nib is made in 18k gold, adorned with filigree decoration, and is available in the writing grades of Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Oblique Medium, Broad, Oblique Broad, Double Broad and Stub 1.1.
This writing instrument also possesses a secret – a technical innovation that still excites pen connoisseurs thanks to complexity that precludes its usage from becoming widespread, even a century later. Characteristic for this fountain pen and true to its vintage inspiration is its “safety nib system.”
Through a special rotating mechanism, positioned inside the barrel, the nib is exposed when being used or retracted when not required. The original pen that inspired Mia Carissima, however, had to be filled with an eye-dropper, thus making the filling ritual rather laborious. It is for this reason that our engineers have developed a new filling system: for the new design, the ink supply is accommodated by an easy-to-replace, single cartridge.
Every special edition produced by Montegrappa is dear to the company, but few evoke so strongly the company’s formative years. Mia Carissima embodies the era of Hemingway and Dos Passos, the war that engulfed Europe and – most poignantly – the many thousands, or even millions of letters that allowed soldiers to communicate with those they left behind.
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 14kt solid gold € 595,00. 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 classic Souverän silhouette makes a unique contrast with the pink shade. The white parts are, as tradition, in high polished turned resin while the new pink body is made in a special production of acetate cellulose carefully operated. 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 ). The pen comes as ballpoint too and includes a nice female box.

Etruria Corsani Limited edition
And finally, our new born pen!
In partnership with Stipula, so rigorously made in Florence, we are proud to announce our new collection of fountain pens.
The philosophy that has inspired us, is the same we've been following since our first edition. We strongly believe the pen to be a writing instrument. It could be precious, it has to be good looking, well made but it must not lose its basic function. Our fountain pens are hand made in the best Italian craftsmen tradition with the utmost care to details, quality,beauty and best writing performance.
This new one takes its appereance from the most loved model of the Florentine company: the Etruria, a classic Ogiva style,sinuosly elegant. We have opted for the original size of the 90s that we consider more comfortable for a daily use and we have enhanced it by the use of the historic ebonite resin.
Ebonite applications begins from the 19th century.
Ebonite is a brand name for very hard rubber first obtained by vulcanizing natural rubber for prolonged periods.It has been the first material to be used for producing fountain pens due to its resistance to corrosion. Its name comes from being used as a replacement of the ebony wood for many purposes.
The collection is available in three colors, two follow the ebonite tradition (red and blu) and the last is more unique and fascinating, from my personal point of view. It is a nice sand color with shades shifting from green to grey.
The technical and most distinctive feature is no doubt the ink window. The pen is piston filling with a huge capacity and works differently from the common ones. You have to turn the bottom cone clockwise to empty the body.
The heart of every fountain pen is the nib and I must give credit to Stipula which, in the last years has implemented an home made production of solid gold nibs. They have a unique flexibility(they are dubbed Stiflex) and a remarkable range of sizes.
The collection is available in three nib versions:
Stiflex 14kt solid gold (Ultrafine, Extrafine, fine, medium, broad, Italic 0.9 and 1.1)
Stainless steel (fine, medium, Italic 1.1 and Vflex)
Regarding the colors we offer 4 options: the red, available both with gold and palladium trims, blue and sand associated to the palladium finishings.
Light and well balanced we hope it will be a reliable daily writing companion able to gratify all the senses!
Limited to only 90 numbered pieces per color.
The first batch we are going to receive will include the first 20 pieces for each version.
We are waiting to receive your comments and we will happily answer all your questions!
