MONTBLANC SET WRITERS EDITION Miguel de Cervantes ( FP-BP-MP )
The design of the Writers Edition Miguel de Cervantes was inspired by the windmills whose shape is reflected in the writing instrument and clip. Their form, tapering in opposing directions, symbolises the different characters of the hero Don Quixote and his squire Sancho Panza.
The body of the Edition shines in brown marbled lacquer and is embellished with the writer´s signature. The handmade 18-karat gold nib is delicately engraved with the outline of a windmill.
Born in Alcalá de Henares near Madrid in 1547, Miguel de Cervantes grew up as the son of an impoverished nobleman. After several adventurous stages in his life, he was imprisoned for embezzlement.
Here he finally found the time to begin his masterpiece about an impoverished nobleman who considers himself to be a noble knight. In Don Quixote´s failure - as in his fight against the windmills - Cervantes shows the contrasts between the fantastic world of knights and the everyday life of simple people.
