Montblanc Writers Edition Shakespeare Rollerball
The Montblanc Writers Edition 2016 celebrates British playwright, poet and actor William Shakespeare, creator of Romeo & Juliet, Hamlet and Macbeth. Shakespeare penned over 150 sonnets and 37 plays, a treasure trove of verbal brilliance that is still integral to the English language today. The diversity and richness of his work is honored in the meticulously-crafted details of the Shakespeare Limited Edition. In a feat of technical virtuosity,
and a first for Montblanc, the cap has an 8-sided shape reminiscent of the octagonal structure of the famous Globe Theatre. Black and white precious resins on the cap and barrel recall the flags raised above the theatre to promote his plays – white for comedy and black for tragedy. The barrel has fine feather-like engravings echoing the quill Shakespeare used for writing. The gold-plated band is embossed with symbols of seven of the bard’s
plays; a white Montblanc emblem is deep-set in the crown. The great author’s signature is etched on the cap; the stage of the Globe Theatre is engraved on the solid 18K gold fountain pen nib. The Writers Edition 2016 also includes a capped rollerball, twist ballpoint pen, and a three-piece set. Montblanc Velvet Red ink accompanies the release of the Writers Edition 2016.
