Montblanc Fountain Pens Mentioned In Fiction

Recommended Posts

~ During recent months it's been necessary to re-read a number of books, among them crime novels by Donna Leon set in Venice, Italy.

While reading I was surprised to notice Montblanc fountain pens mentioned in four of her novels.

Death in a Strange Country (1993) in Chapter 8 when Vice-Questore Giuseppe Patta signs papers

Death and Judgment (1995) in Chapter 3 with Avvocato Trevisan makes calculations

Acqua Alta (1996) in Chapter 4 when Vice-Questore Patta is described as using his Montblanc Meisterstück

Wilful Behavior (2002) in Chapter 22 when Commissario Guido Brunetti's friend Marco Erizzo uses a Montblanc with purple ink

Are Montblanc fountain pens frequently mentioned by contemporary fiction authors?

If so, I wasn't aware of it until now. Had I read more widely perhaps this wouldn't have surprised me.

I usually read book published in English, published in the USA and the UK. I have never seen any references to MB pens, except for a book by Max Walker, the Australian author. Even then, he just mentioned it in passing.
