Since 1992 Montblanc releases a a pen commemoration the life of a famous writer, the first was Ernest Hemingway. In 1995 they decided to dedicate a pen to François-Marie Arouet, better known as Voltaire.
Voltaire was a versatile and prolific writer, producing works in almost every literary form, including plays, poems, novels, essays, histories, and scientific expositions. He wrote more than 20,000 letters and 2,000 books and pamphlets. He was one of the first authors to become renowned and commercially successful internationally. He was an outspoken advocate of civil liberties, and was at constant risk from the strict censorship laws of the Catholic French monarchy. His polemics witheringly satirized intolerance, religious dogma, and the French institutions of his day. (source Wikipedia)
“The Writers Edition Voltaire seems to reflect the fascinating personality of Voltaire in every detail. The surface of black precious resin appears just as unfathomable as his thoughts. The engraved mountings and the cap top in vermeil – gold-plated 925 sterling silver – are as rich as the possessions of Voltaire, whose gold-coloured signature decorates the cap of the pen. The 18-karat gold nib, made by a master craftsman, is finished off by delicate engravings reminiscent of the age of Voltaire.”
