Montblanc's 2010 Writers Edition Series honors the father of Modern American Literature, Mark Twain.
Mark Twain, driven by a precise observant eye, a keen sense of humour and a critical wit, developed a unique writing style in his works that has lost none of its captivating quality over time.
At the end of the 19th century, Mark Twain produced a socially critical masterpiece that left an enduring impression on American literature: with "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" he created a moving modern American literary classic that continues to inspire millions of readers all over the world.
The Montblanc Mark Twain collection is made of writing instruments that match a dark blue resin with platinum coated metal trims. The whole form of the writing instruments recalls the chimney of a steamship, while the resin carries a wave pattern that recalls the waters of the Mississippi river.
