Robert Louis Stevenson, a master of adventure and mystery, crafted legendary tales that echo through time. The Montblanc Writers Edition Homage to Robert Louis Stevenson is a tribute to this imaginative storyteller, drawing inspiration from his iconic novel, “Treasure Island“.
Crafting Adventure: A Spyglass-Inspired Masterpiece
The Montblanc Writers Edition, dedicated to Stevenson, intricately weaves the essence of “Treasure Island” into its design.
The overall shape of the writing instrument mirrors a historic, extendable spyglass, inviting writers to embark on their own literary voyages.
The black precious resin barrel, adorned with engraved crosses and a larger “X,” pays homage to the iconic marks on a treasure map.
Nautical Nods: A Sea of Details on the Cap
The cap of the Writers Edition is a canvas of maritime elements that echo Stevenson’s seafaring tales. Vertical lines reminiscent of the schooner “Hispaniola” and a traditional sea chest grace the cap, creating a visual narrative of maritime exploration.
The platinum-coated clip, shaped like a belaying pin, pays homage to the rigging of a ship, while behind it, a compass rose signifies direction on the open sea.
At the cap top, the Montblanc emblem takes on a rebellious touch – a skull and crossbones, reminiscent of the pirate lore embedded in Stevenson’s narratives.
The cap ring bears an engraving of Stevenson’s signature, alongside the publication date of his inaugural work, “The Pentland Rising” from 1866, immortalizing the genesis of his literary journey.
Tusitala’s Legacy: Handcrafted Solid Gold Nib
The handcrafted solid Au 750 gold rhodium-coated nib is more than a writing instrument; it’s a work of art. Engraved with fine waves, it pays homage to Stevenson’s passion for the sea.
The nib proudly carries the title given to the esteemed writer by the Samoans, “Tusitala,” a tribute to Stevenson’s time in the South Seas and his impact as a global traveler.
