Montblanc Homer Writers Edition 2018 Set (L.E.)
[MB-117881]
This Montblanc Writers Edition 2018 takes its main inspiration from the story of the Trojan horse, written down by the legendary Greek author Homer. The overall shape is inspired by the horse, with the back and clip reflecting the spear of Achilles. The engraving on the cone and rings borrows motifs from traditional Greek black-figured pottery, with the overall color of the writing instrument taking inspiration from this same black Greek pottery.

The set consists of a fountain pen, rollerball and mechanical pencil. The large piston fountain pen, in 149 size, has an 18 karat gold nib with the image of an ancient Greek warrior on it.



About the writer
Homer (ca. 800 BC ca. 750 BC) the name ascribed by the ancient Greeks to the legendary author of the Iliad and the Odyssey, two epic poems that are the central works of ancient Greek literature. The Iliad is set during the Trojan War, the ten-year siege of the city of Troy by a coalition of Greek kingdoms. It focuses on a quarrel between King Agamemnon and the warrior Achilles lasting a few weeks during the last year of the war. The Odyssey focuses on the journey home of Odysseus, king of Ithaca, after the fall of Troy.
From antiquity until the present day, the influence of the Homeric epics on Western civilization has been great, inspiring many of its most famous works of literature, music, art and film. The Homeric epics were the greatest influence on ancient Greek culture and education; to Plato, Homer was simply the one who "has taught Greece".
