A Tribute to the Father of the English Novel and Creator of Robinson Crusoe
This Fall 2014 Montblanc pays tribute to the author of one of world literature’s great epic novels and the father of realistic fiction, Daniel Defoe. Not able to recall who this great writer is? How about refreshing your memory with the famous adventure story published in 1719, titled Robinson Crusoe? Now I am sure everyone will have heard about the story, one that vividly captures the ordeals about a castaway who finds himself stranded on a tropical island to face cannibals and mutineers.
Every detail of the writing instrument recalls the story of this brave character lost at sea, as masterfully narrated by Defoe in his novel. The shape of the writing instrument is inspired by the wooden paddle that Crusoe relied on in vain to escape from the island on many occasions. Precious resin was used on the cap and barrel to achieve an effect that captures the complex texture and colour of wood, a material that symbolizes Crusoe’s life as a survivor on the remote island, reduced to the simplest of things. Enhancing the appearance of the resin’s polished surface, the cap ring and cone are adorned with fine engravings typical of the 18th century ornaments that decorated leather-bound book covers of the time, including the first-ever edition of the novel.
Attention to details is impeccable in these Montblanc Writers Edtion: Daniel Dafoe writing instruments, even right down to the elaborately decorated feather shape clip, reminiscent of Crusoe’s most loyal companion on the island, the parrot Pol. This collection of Fountain Pens, Rollerball and Ballpoint Pens truly immortalises the author’s unmistakable imprint on world literature into a collector’s piece that exemplifies his prolific writing talent.
I forsee this will make a fantastic gift for any literary fans, especially anyone who are avid readers of Daniel Dafoe’s work. The Montblanc Writers Edition: Daniel Defoe collection of writing instruments is available in Montblanc stores now. Just in time for Christmas season!
