To celebrate the power of imagination and the importance of transmitting ideas and values to the ones we love, Montblanc is releasing a special edition Meisterstück inspired by the much-loved literary character of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s Le Petit Prince.
One of the world’s most translated books with editions in more than 250 languages and dialects, the allegorical story about the chance encounter between a pilot and a little prince from a distant planet explores the universal themes of imagination, open-mindedness, and the value of human relationships.
According to the luxury writing instrument brand, the story of the little prince beautifully illustrates the power of the art of writing. The words and drawings of Saint-Exupéry have touched hearts and minds around the world and across generations.
With design elements based on Saint-Exupéry’s sensitive hand-drawn illustrations, the Meisterstück Le Petit Prince captures the book’s simple message that transmitting one’s dreams and values to others is what makes one’s life meaningful.
The first series of Meisterstück Le Petit Prince edition, which was launched in June, features the inspiring and tender characters of the young prince and the fox who enlightens him about the importance of close bonds and human relationships, revealing the core wisdom learned from his own life’s experiences.
A first for Montblanc, the cap and the barrel of the Meisterstück Le Petit Prince Special Edition are made of night-blue precious resin evoking the deep blue sky of the universe around the prince. The milled cap is decorated with a fox face pattern with platinum-coated fittings contrasting with the deep blue color of the writing instrument.
As a reminder of the laughter in the stars, a golden star adorns the clip of this edition. The delicate character of Le Petit Prince is immortalized along with his friend the fox, engraved on the handcrafted 14K rhodium-plated nib.
A sentence from the original novel is laser engraved into the crown of the Fountain Pen, Roller Ball, and Ballpoint Pen: “Créer des liens? ... Tu seras pour moi unique au monde” (“To establish ties? ... To me, you will be unique in all the world.”)
Meanwhile, the Meisterstück Le Petit Prince Doué Classique Edition pairs the deep blue color of the lacquer barrel with the luminosity of a platinum-coated cap elegantly decorated with engravings of the fox pattern. It is available as a Ballpoint Pen, a Roller Ball, and a Fountain Pen with an 18K bi-color nib embellished with the outline of the little prince and the fox.
The fox pattern covers both the cap and the barrel of the Meisterstück Le Petit Prince Solitaire, engraved on the deep blue lacquer. Contrasting with the blue, the fittings are crafted from platinum-coated metal.
To extend the Meisterstück Le Petit Prince writing experience, the company has also created special ink and refills inspired by the fox character. A leather notebook, bound in fine Saffiano leather featuring a fox scenery print on its cover, completes the writing experience.
