Montblanc, “Hemingway”

Montblanc created this pen in 1992 in honour of Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961), in a limited and numbered edition of 25 000 examples. The first of Montblanc’s “Writers Edition”.

The pen’s coral and dark brown design evokes the patterns of the 1930s, a decade in which Hemingway consolidated his reputation as a brilliant writer.

The ball-point-pen was produced in a limited and numbered edition of 30 000 examples.


Hemingway, Ernest Miller
July 21, 1899 – July 2, 1961

American novelist, short-story writer, journalist, and sportsman. His economical and understated style – which he termed the iceberg theory – had a strong influence on 20th-century fiction, while his adventurous lifestyle and his public image brought him admiration from later generations. Hemingway produced most of his work between the mid-1920s and the mid-1950s, and he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. He published seven novels, six short-story collections, and two nonfiction works. Three of his novels, four short-story collections, and three nonfiction works were published posthumously. Many of his works are considered classics of American literature.
