This special edition Meisterstück ballpoint pen from Montblanc is inspired by the famous literature work of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Le Petit Prince. This French work of literature was published in 1943 and is known today as one of the most translated books in the world.
The story is about an encounter between a pilot and a young prince. The prince lives on planet asteroid B 612, on which one rose grows that he protects with a glass screen. For the Montblanc Le Petit Prince and Planet, the rose symbolizes our earth. Humans only have one earth and that is why the philosophical relationship between nature and the environment is put in the spotlight. So, this pen is a reminder of the value of our planet and emphasizing that we should cherish our planet.
"The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched, they are felt with the heart."
- Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Le Petit Prince
