Montblanc Hemingway Screensaver
Posted 14 August 2012 - 01:10
I posted on the web a screensaver "Montblanc Hemingway" fountain pen, which can be downloaded for free at these links:
It is dedicated to all the owners, almost owners, people-waiting-one-in-the-mail, dreamers, and otherwise fanatics of the Montblanc Writers Edition Ernest Hemingway, the first pen in this series, released in 1992. It is aimed to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of this very special fountain pen, which occurs to happen this year.
This is my first screensaver, so please be kind if you find it rough. On the good side, most of the photographs are mine, while the other have no more copyright, so you can use the screensaver freely on your computers.
I make it with a Macintosh, and even though I saved it for Mac (OS X 1.4 and later) and for Windows (XP and later), I can not check it on a P, so I do not know if the screensaver is working properly in Windows. Also, the images of the screensaver are formatted for my screen (an iMac 27"), which is 2560 by 1440 pixels (23.50" x 13.25"), or roughly 5:3. If you have different screen proportions, and you check that the screensaver is not displaying correctly, please notify me.
Hope you like it.

Please include me in the dreamers for the time being.

All I need now is to get a M- or B-nib Hemi from Bonhams this fall at a price that doesn't send me into palpitations.........

On a full HD-screen in Windows7 it works good.
Only one comment. Your preview shows your name/signature, but in the screensaver it is not there. Maybe it is the resulotion? I use 1920x1080, so maybe a part of the pics are not being displayed.

The HEMINGWAY --- my Grail Pen.

I have updated the files, including an improved version of the screensaver, with a few minor things fixed and some more slides.
You can download the new version at:
Thank you all for your kind words:
KJY, my signature was pasted only in the "advertisement" photograph: no signature in any of the screensaver slides.
meiers: I understand very well that you may have the Hemi as your grail pen, as it is a really special pen indeed. Colors, proportions, nib, anything is simply perfect to me: a joy to see and use.
