Suggestions For Mb Limited Edition Pens


Ellison

Recommended Posts

I often wonder how the MB team comes up with ideas for new LE pens such as those in the writers series or special characters and POA series.

 

There many possibilities that I can imagine. How about a WB Yeats pen? Another idea I had was a Malala Yousafzai pen inspired by this special person's sacrifice and dedication to education for women across all borders.

 

What would others like to see? Do you think MB would listen?

I still can't believe there isn't a William Shakespeare edition. He is one of the most prolific writers in history and they haven't made a edition for him? Another one is Stephen King. Of the one's made so far I love the Agatha Christie the most.

Unless they come out with a Yeats pen in the next couple of months they have kind of missed the boat on that one, this being an important anniversary year. I would like to see a Hieronymous Bosch pen. I would like to see it, but I wouldn't expect it to be useable; rather a bit more like a devil possessed sort of pen or possibly some kind of extended penitential torture device.Then again, it might just end up looking like a Guru.

What would others like to see?

 

Less threads on this topic. There have been numerous previous discussions on this topic. The issue is everyone has different likes and dislikes so if you ask 100 people you'll get close to 100 different suggestions.

 

As long as the pen is interesting I don't personally care who or what inspired it.

What about a Martin Luther King Jr.? I think there needs to be some more civil rights activist commemorations, such as the Omas Nelson Mandela. Also, how about a Ronald Reagan? Many consider him the greatest president in the modern United States, and yet MB only made a dinky 146 with his name inscribed on the side. He needs a commemorative Great Characters piece, imho!

How about a Tom Clancy? It would have to be huge, nuclear powered, shoot bullets and explode and generally save the world every two years or so...

What? No one has mentioned the reissue of the 139 yet? And the obligatory 'but for a reasonable cost." addendum. :)

If you want less blah, blah, blah and more pictures, follow me on Instagram!

That reaction would apply to a great many things. What's important to one is irrelevant to another. Long live the First Amendment.

 

Interestingly, one of the Bill of Rights authors, Thomas Jefferson, is the inspiration for a Montblanc special edition, signatures for freedom pen set that is way out there in terms of price (far too many zeros). Not a fanfare for the common man this signatures for freedom set.

 

I personally do care about, have preferences for, and am interested in what other pen lovers consider good candidates for MB pens.

Yeats would top my list for a new WE pen, particularly in the 150th anniversary of his birth.

I'd be concerned, let me rephrase that, flat out afraid to see many female commemoratives come out of a company that seems to have seriously (by centuries) outdated views as to what constitutes "feminine" or a "lady's" pen.

This made me think of someone who was instrumental in persuading FDR to pursue social programs and more humane working conditions. A woman, yes, but by a conventional definition of "feminine", no. But what a difference Frances Perkins made for millions of people!

 

And the same could be said for so many others. If they listened, Montblanc could actually learn something about meaningful human contribution beyond conventional notions of feminine and masculine. Listen Montblanc! It is possible.

I know what you mean but I love the Garbo SE. It's rather stylish. Also a bit baffled by the exclusion of Shakespeare...

I don't get this comment. Is Virginia Woolf too edgy? (Besides, Montblanc hasn't existed for centuries.)

 

Please provide your example of "what constitutes 'feminine' or a 'lady's' pen."

Evidently, you didn't read her comment as it was written. She said nothing about MB being centuries old. She's said their views are centuries outdated

 

Ever notice how when some puts their foot in their mouth they go silent, rather than saying oops, my bad. Also, if you're gonna insult a moderator atleast be correct in your criticism. As a woman, she's not obliged to give any one an example of what she thinks constitutes femininity or a lady pen.

To take Jars suggestion just a wee bit further, I'd like to see the Dr Seuss pen be modeled after Horton hears a who
