Montblanc celebrates Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

WITH its Writers Edition pens, Montblanc pays tribute to some of the world’s greatest literary figures. Among those great writers is Scottish-born Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, best known for the 60 stories he wrote about Sherlock Holmes. The new Montblanc Writers Edition Sir Arthur Conan Doyle collection is inspired by the Sherlock Holmes stories and the life of his originator. The clip on each of the editions is shaped like a magnifying glass in homage to Sherlock Holmes. The author’s likeness can be found engraved on every nib on each of the four editions, accompanied by a special story element from the theme of the respective edition. The four editions are: the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Special Edition, whose cap and barrel are decorated with a pattern based on an original Sherlock Holmes Tartan, and details that focus on Doyle’s medical practice like an old street map showing the street of his clinic, and whose nib is engraved with pterodactyls from his novel The Lost World, and a cap ring decorated with Doyle’s signature and the vine symbol from the cover of A Study in Scarlet, among other touches; the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Limited Edition 1902, whose dark brown lacquer recalls the detective’s pipe, the limited number of 1,902 fountain pens and 1,902 rollerballs is a reference to the first publishing of The Hound of Baskervilles in 1902; the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Limited Edition 97 which references 1897, the year the author’s house in Surrey, where he wrote most of his important works, was completed, it also has a white gold skeletonized overlay on different translucent lacquer fields inspired by the stained-glass windows at the house; and the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Limited Edition 8, adorned with three-dimensional icebergs in white gold, surrounded by translucent blue lacquer reminiscent of the icy waters of the Arctic where he had served as ship’s surgeon on a whaling boat. To complete the tribute to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Montblanc is introducing a selection of matching writing accessories: a stationery notebook made from woven velvet featuring a street map of London and the author’s signature; a red ink in a glass ink bottle is inspired by the first Sherlock Holmes novel A Study in Scarlet; and a single leather pen pouch embossed with a street map of London and tartan pattern. Montblanc is available at Rustans Makati, Rustans Shangri-La, Rustan’s Cebu, Greenbelt 5, City of Dreams, Resorts World and through Rustan’s Personal Shopper On-Call
