Writers Edition Kipling

Homage to Rudyard Kipling

With the Montblanc Writers Edition, issued every year since 1992, Montblanc pays tribute to the greatest icons of literary history.

In the eternal green of the jungle one can lose themselves, and also find exciting stories. Rudyard Kipling used the jungle to imagine one of the most exciting children’s books of all time. This collection honours the author’s prolific works.

“I am, by calling, a dealer in words; and words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind"

- Rudyard Kipling, A Book of Words, Surge on sand the Soul, 1928

Rudyard Kipling’s vocabulary may have been the greatest in English literature since Shakespeare. The Bombay-born British author and poet wrote himself into the collective consciousness with The Jungle Book. The Montblanc Writers Edition Homage to Rudyard Kipling is dedicated to this great author and poet.

The Law of the Jungle

The story of the boy Mowgli is world-famous – but Kipling’s literary accomplishment is much more complex. The individual characters are as deeply developed as their models in the wild.

In reference to the wolves who act as mentors for the young Mowgli, the top of the platinum-coated clip is artfully crafted to resemble the head of a wolf.
