Montegrappa unveils The Genio Creativo Khalil Gibran pens
September 29, 2015: Montegrappa has collaborated closely with the Gibran National Committee (GNC), and renowned Lebanese artist Katja Traboulsy to create homage to Gibran’s legacy. The GNC was established in Bsharreh, to protect and continue his legacy after his death, and Montegrappa is supporting the Gibran legacy through this project with a donation to the GNC for each pen sold.
The pens are made of resin in a colour reminiscent of the blue, black and grey prominent in Gibran’s paintings. This rich, dark hue is accented with palladium plated trim, while the fountain pen nib is two tones 18K solid gold and bears the famous face believed by many to be Gibran’s ultimate self-portrait. All pens feature a pocket clip in the form of a hand with a solitary Sapphire set as the eye on the open palm, named the Divine World by Gibran himself. The base of the cap is inscribed with the writer’s signature, and the top of the cap bears the emblem of a ‘K’ overlaid on a ‘G’, a symbol found in the corner of many of Gibran’s paintings, his own personal logo.
In honour of the year of the birth of this legendary writer, the Khalil Gibran limited edition consists of 1883 examples each of fountain pens, roller balls and ball point pens. Each series of pens will be numbered 1/1883 to 1883/1883.
Price: Ball Point – INR 78,995; Roller Ball – INR 98,995; Fountain Pen – INR 1,16,995
