I was told my the Montblanc boutique in Los Angeles that the next author being recognized by Montblanc for their writer's series is Jonathan Swift, the writer of Gulliver's Travel. This should be a very elaborate pen, just like the Carlo "Pinochio" Collodi pens. I'm excited! I think/hope it will feature a highly detailed design with Liliputians. Can anyone tell me anything specific about the design? Does anyone know of a link to a site with some pictures? Thanks in advance.

First off :W2FPN:

This was posted a week or so ago by another member. As far as I know there are no pictures out yet. Last year it was about mid-year before they started showing up. I am curious about this one.

If the barrel of the pen doubles as a meat thermometer, I'm buying one. "A Modest Proposal" was one of my favorite reads in high school.

A site that you should keep your eyes on is this one:
http://www.cruzaltpens.com/
It had information on and fotos of the current WE long before any other site did last year. Add the link to your favorites and just visit the "historico" section from time to time.Welcome & Cheers.

I too, think that this is the choice work of Swift's. Perhaps a chef and small children motif?

My guess is that the acquisition of one of these will be no modest proposal!
