Montblanc Pens & Stationeries
Montblanc has been honouring St-Ex as an inspiring writer with its special edition of pens in 2017; and has also launched three series to pay homage to The Little Prince. The first series in 2018 with blue colour representing the sky; the second in 2019 with brown colour representing the desert; and the third in 2020 with burgundy colour representing the planet, or the rose.
The elegant fountain pen nibs displayed above are from MB St-Ex Writer Edition (the star) , LPP 2018 (the prince with the fox), LPP 2019 (the goat), and LPP 2020 (the prince sweeps the planet).
MB LPP 2018
The MB Meisterstück Le Petit Prince LeGrand displayed here was launched in 2018. The colour of the body was inspired by the dark blue universe sky taken from the book. The cap, milled with a fox face pattern, reveals a sentence from the book and is crowned with the iconic emblem. The clip is embellished with a yellow lacquered star.
This adorable writing instrument is finished with a rhodium-coated 14K gold nib garnished with the little prince and the fox.
Accompanying this elegant fountain pen, MB also issued a roller ball series.
MB LPP 2019
Nicknamed The Aviator, the LPP 2019 pen also pays a tribute to St-Ex as the pilot himself. The metal cap of the pen is decorated with a drawing of the desert and aeroplane, with platinum-coated fittings contrasting with the dark brown of the writing instrument. The barrel of this Meisterstück Special Edition is coloured dark brown evoking the aesthetic of the aviator.
Before travelling back to his asteroid, the little prince tells the pilot he will be able to hear his laugh any time simply by looking at the stars and remembering. As a reminder of the laughter in the stars, a golden star adorns the clip of this edition. A sentence from the original novel has been laser engraved into the crown of the writing instrument: Toutes les grandes personnes ont d’abord été des enfants.
Oh, this pen has a 18K gold nib engraved with the picture of a goat.
Accompanying this elegant fountain pen, MB also issued a ballpen series.
MB LPP 2020

MB St-Ex: The Writer Series
As a part of the Writer Series, in 2017 Montblanc has launched a special edition for Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. The overall design and shape of the fountain pen was inspired by St-Ex’ iconic Caudron Simoun plane and his famous novel Night Flight. Engravings on the barrel and cap show the sky as seen by Saint-Exupéry on November 1, 1929, at 23:00.
Montblanc has thrice launched the special edition of Le Petit Prince pen series: in 2018, 2019, and 2020. On each launching, they also launced specially rebranded inks for Le Petit Prince enthusiasts.
