Taking the pride of place in the heart of Montblanc, the German luxury goods purveyor has been paying obeisance to the power of literature and the creativity of writers since 1992 with the Montblanc Writers Edition. From Sir Arthur Canan Doyle to Victor Hugo, every dedicated collection honours magnum opuses of the revered authors with Montblanc’s exceptional craftsmanship.
For the 2022 version, Montblanc makes reference to Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, the writer of all-time favourite fairy tales the likes of Cinderella, The Frog Prince, Sleeping Beauty and Little Red Riding Hood. A tribute to the bedtime stories that we grow up with, the Montblanc Writers Editions Homage to Brothers Grimm collection comprises four distinctive interpretations, inspired by Rapunzel, The Sleeping Beauty, Hansel & Gretel and Snow White.
A parade of intricate minutiae, the Brothers Grimm collection in the shape of wooden wandering stick is decorated with gnarly root like clip, which unveils the facial profile of the fabled duo when viewing sideways and a cap ring engraved with “ES WAR EINMAL…” (Once Upon A Time) upon a close-up look. The details are further rhapsodised with elaborate burning flames that adorn the meticulously-crafted nib.
