Montblanc Writers Edition 2009 - Thoman Mann

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

A new 2009 writers edition of Montblanc, called Montblanc Writers Edition Thomas Mann. Thomas Mann’s masterpiece “Buddenbrooks” has brought him immortality and has turned him into one of the most famous writers of the 20th century. Montblanc is paying tribute to this unique wordsmith with an equally unique Writers Edition. The platinum-plated inlays in the rich black lacquer of this writing instrument are inspired by the age of artistic creativity in which Thomas Mann lived: the Art Deco era. The interplay of colours and materials symbolises the different relationships between the characters in “Buddenbrooks”.

An onyx-coloured zircon is set above the teardrop on the clip, reflecting the depth of content of this family saga. The delicate engraving of the “Buddenbrooks” house on the rhodium-plated 18 K gold nib brings Mann’s birthplace in Lübeck to mind, which is now the home of the Thomas Mann Museum. His signature and the ivory-coloured Montblanc emblem on the top of the cap add the finishing touches to this exceptional edition in honour of Thomas Mann.
