Montegrappa PAULO COELHO Limited Edition
“When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
These words came to life through the sensitivity of a great author: Paulo Coelho. A Master of the written word and of stirring up emotions, Coelho could not help being won over by the historical name of Montegrappa because Montegrappa, the first Italian pen manufacturer, has always been the instrument and the expression of the true enthusiasm for writing. It is this collaboration that breaths life into the Paulo Coelho L.E.: because the journey amid the heart of writing deserves a cherished fellow traveller.
In every detail the Paulo Coelho L.E. is a tribute to the personal and artistic journey of the great writer. 1947 limited editions were created; recalling Coelho’s date of birth (24th August, 1947). In the collection, this number consists of 1,000 fountain pens in silver, 900 rollers in silver and emeralds and 47 fountain pens in yellow gold, emeralds and diamonds. In every model of this limited edition, the shaft and the cap are manufactured using the technique of metal perforating. This technique serves to highlight the contrast between the black pearl resin and the enveloping sheath in precious metal. “The pen is a musical instrument. Its sound can be heard when it touches paper”.(Paulo Coelho)
Enhanced with the engraving of a butterfly; another symbol the author is keen on, the nibs are made of 18 carat white gold for the silver fountain pen and in 18 carat yellow gold for the gold version. The shaft pays homage to an important experience of Coelho’s: his pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. The route covered by the author is plotted out in precious black lacquer in the silver model and in diamonds in the gold one. At the top of the pen, together with the historic Montegrappa logo, is the figure of a compass; recalling Coelho’s artistic symbolism. The author’s autograph adorns the cap and the lines of the clip represent the lines of a sword – referring to his masterpiece “The Pilgrimage”.
