Product Engraving & Gift Wrap

Each year Montblanc dedicates stunning writing instruments to well-known authors, creating the 'Writers Edition' collection. This year Montblanc is paying homage to Victor Hugo, a literary genius whose life and work have forever marked the history of France. Hugo (1802 - 1885) was a French novelist, poet and dramatist of the Romantic movement. V. Hugo has been and still is considered one of the greatest and most influential French writers. Hugo is best known for his work Les Misérables and The Hunchback of Notre-Dame. The following Writers Edition range has greatly been inspired by Hugo's novels and the Notre-Dame architecture. 

This beautiful black fountain pen has been crafted out of Montblanc's finest precious resin and features stunning polished platinum trims. The 18K rhodium-plated nib has been crafted by hand and refers to the novel Notre-Dame de Paris with a fine Gargoyle engraving on the nib - one of the cathedral's grotesque waterspouts. The black precious resin barrel features detailed engravings that are reminiscent of the Hauteville House wood carvings. The black precious resin pen cap has been crowned with Montblanc's iconic snowcap emblem for subtle brand recognition. The platinum-coated clip has been inspired by the rose windows of the Notre-Dame cathedral and the end of the clip is shaped like the clapper of a bell, recalls the bell ringer Quasimodo and the bells of Notre-Dame. Engraved on the side is Victor Hugo's iconic signature. The main character from Les Misérables (Jean Valjean) is immortalised on the cap of the Montblanc ballpoint pen is a depiction based on a drawing by Gustave Brion. Engraved around the pen cap is the following sentence from Les Contemplations; 'Chaque homme dans sa nuit s'en va vers sa lumière'.

Upon purchase, this black Writers Edition fountain pen will be presented inside a special Victor Hugo presentation box, shaped to look like a book. We can plaque engrave and gift wrap your new writing instrument. A 2-year warranty booklet will also be issued on the day of purchase.

There is a small selection of fonts that will contain different character designs, and you may not like or approve of some of them. For example, in one of the fonts - 'Victoria' - the letter 'V' looks similar to the letter 'D' because of the italic serif design. Once an item has been engraved we cannot refund or exchange it, because we will not be able to resell an engraved item.
