Viva Montblanc!

Elvis Presley has left the building but his influence on music and style continues unabated. The King, known for the flashy costumes worn in his performances and movies, has now inspired one-of-a-kind writing instruments.

The firm of Montblanc has paid homage to King Tut, Jules Verne, Ernest Hemingway and other notables in spectacular style. Their artisans now celebrate the “King of Rock & Roll” himself, Elvis Presley. In a series of three writing instruments, Montblanc has captured the essence of Elvis. Nods to his sense of style adorn the sparkplug-shaped pens engraved with “Elvis has left the building” and “Ambition is a dream with a V8 engine.” The clips are adorned with his initials. Even the trademark white cap symbolizing the brand is engraved “Elvis.” The Great Characters Elvis Presley Collection includes a ballpoint pen, a rollerball pen and a fountain pen. However, true Elvis fans will choose the gold Elvis Presley Limited Edition 1935 Fountain Pen featuring a cover inlaid with the eagle from the King’s concert costume and a solid gold nib engraved “Jailhouse Rock”;
