For the Lennon lovers: a Montblanc John Lennon Special Edition fountain pen!
Montblanc John Lennon Fountain Pen
Montblanc celebrates the 70th Anniversary of one of the most talented artists ever to write music history – Montblanc has captured Lennon’s incredible soul and philosophy. The Liverpool-born musician achieved international recognition as a member of The Beatles performing to adoring fans all over the world. However, it was his solo work after the band dissolved which established him as a cultural icon in his own right. Not only was John Lennon admired for his music contribution, he was also considered a great thinker, an independent mind and a true visionary whose influence shaped the intellectual mood of an era.
Reflecting his genius as a musician, the John Lennon Special Edition incorporates several design elements evoking the music of the 1950s and 1960s. The gentle grooves chiseled into the black precious resin of the barrel mimic those of a vintage vinyl record, and the platinum-finished clip is shaped like a period guitar neck complete with tuning pegs and etched strings. Hand engraved on the 18K gold nib is the iconic symbol of peace.
At the focal point of the instrument, where the cap meets the barrel, a silver disk engraved with John Lennon’s self-portrait – the sketch he often scribbled in place of a signature – pays tribute to the memory of the edition’s namesake. The fountain pen is presented in an oversized box embossed with Lennon’s signature on the front. Inside you’ll find a Special Edition commemorative booklet and a custom-packaged 7″ EP record of Lennon’s performance of his song, “Imagine”. Montblanc will donate proceeds of this edition to help new generations of rising talents follow the legacy of John Lennon and support music education around the world. Bottle fill only.
