Description (Excerpt from montblanc.com)
The Writers Edition F. Scott Fitzgerald revives the glamour of the "Roaring Twenties". The shimmering white barrel forms a striking contrast to the black precious resin cap, which is decorated by the signature of F. Scott Fitzgerald.
Dignified tribute is paid to the origins of the legendary Art Deco style by the delicately engraved 1920s urban skyline that decorates the rhodium-plated 18-karat gold nib.
The roaring twenties were the age of extravagance and Art Deco. The people of its jazz age generation had a ball with the Charleston and champagne – and F. Scott Fitzgerald was their idol. Although Fitzgerald enjoyed the high-society life, in his outstanding works such as “The Great Gatsby” and “This Side of Paradise” he drew a subtle psychological portrait of the hedonistic America of the 1920s, which allowed the inescapable tragedy beneath the glittering surface to show through
