"Language and writing are the starting points for the evolution of cultural history. It was only once our ancestors were able to talk and write about their experience and knowledge that history could develop, culture spread and civilization mature.
The way individuals express themselves is rooted in the culture of writing – as is Montblanc. For this reason, it is part of Montblanc’s mission to promote art and culture, and to delicate itself to them actively in a variety of ways.

This is a mission that takes concrete form in the Writers Edition and the Patron of Art Edition. Year after year, these limited series of handcrafted writing instruments pay tribute to great personalities who have performed outstanding services for art and culture. The writers Edition is dedicated to important writers of world renown and makes their work and their lives the focus for the design of the writing instruments. The Patron of Art Editions are fascinating tributes to historical promoters and patrons of the arts. Montblanc’s cultural commitment is also evident in the Donation Pens – which commemorate world-famous musicians and composers. Part of the profits from these writing instruments goes directly to specifically selected art and cultural projects. The following pages show exquisite writing instruments from these three series of editions, along with the Special Theme Editions, which are launched periodically to mark special occasions. The editions have one thing in common: they all manifest in every detail a dedication to perfect craftsmanship and a love of one of the highest forms of human expression – the culture of writing.

The Montblanc Collectors Guide is an indispensable companion for all friends and collectors of fine writing instruments. This volume contains all Montblanc Limited Editions that have appeared since 1991 and of which at least 333 specimens have been produced, including editions that are generally no longer available on the market and have already changed hands at the highest of prices in famous auction houses such as Christie’s. Each edition is presented to the reader with all the details regarding materials and manufacture – enriched by interesting background information about the artists, authors, patrons or events which have given their names to the relevant writing instruments. So the Montblanc Collectors Guide is both a clear compendium for passionate collectors of exclusive writing instruments, and an illustrated book that can be picked up again and again by all lovers of the fine arts."
