Montblanc's Homage to Victor Hugo

White Montblanc Victor Hugo 1831 Limited Edition Writing Instruments

Since 1992, Montblanc without fail has released a collection of writing instruments that pay tribute to great writers whose works have become part of world literature. Known as the ‘Writers Edition’, this Montblanc collection features a variety of limited edition writing instruments. Each writing instrument is reminiscent of the chosen authors works and their lives.

In previous years we’ve seen Montblanc pay homage to authors such as Leo Tolstoy, William Shakespeare, Rudyard Kipling, Jonathan Swift and many more. 2020’s Writers Edition has been dedicated to none other than Victor Marie Hugo, French novelist whose literature shaped the French nation to what it is today. Not only was Victor Hugo know for Les Misérables and Notre-Dame de Paris (The Hunchback of Notre-Dame) but he was known for his role as the Senator of Seine (1876-1885) and for being a Member of the National Assembly for Gironde (1871).

The first set Montblanc Victor Hugo writing instruments have been inspired by the gothic arches of Notre-Dame, as seen in The Hunchback of Notre-Dame. This first set of writing instruments have been crafted out of black precious resin. The platinum-coated clip has been shaped like the clapper bell, recalls the bell ringer Quasimodo and the bells of Notre-Dame.
