With the preponderance of e-devices, from smartphones to tablets and who-knows-what’s-next, writing and writing well seem to be a lost art. So, when you find yourself inspired to write something creative or heartfelt (like a real thank you note), try using something truly special, like the newly released limited edition Montblanc Writers Edition Mark Twain Pen. Adorned with a blue wave pattern reminiscent of the mighty Mississippi River and a steamboat chimney style endcap, the Mark Twain Pen is both elegant and masculine. Not your run-of-the-mill Montblanc pen (if there is such a thing), all Writers Edition versions are created as an homage to the likes of the illustrious Samuel Clemens, Fyodor Dostoyevsky and William Faulkner, each with a unique style using high-quality materials. Just don’t expect to start writing like any of these literary greats. Available in ballpoint, rollerball and fountain versions. And, no, they don’t have a Tom Clancy edition.
