Assouline and author Alexander Fury take a look back at the last 110+ years of the iconic manufacturer of the definitive writing instrument. Montblanc: Inspire Writing takes a look at the impact those intricately crafted nibs have had on the world.
"Montblanc: Inspire Writing tells the remarkable story of a pioneering Maison striving since its very inception to inspire people to write, to let their thoughts flow across a page, to leave their mark, pen in hand. Through the words of journalist and author Alex Fury, punctuated by archive images, documents and striking new product visuals by photographer Laziz Hamani, the book reveals the multifaceted identity of Montblanc, as the summit of luxury writing instruments for people who strive for excellence and dare to make their individual mark with signature flair and style. It also reminds us of the power of handwriting and the traces of humanity found in every letter inked on paper.
Montblanc pens are in fact instruments, finely tuned artistic creations that serve as tools for the creative endeavours of others. With each of its editions, Montblanc continues to excite new creativity through the memory of creatives that have gone before, and who still create today - galvanizing others toward leaving their own mark, one handwritten word at a time."
