Montblanc Hails Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

13 August 2017


Montblanc’s Antoine de Saint-Exupéry ballpoint pen refill packaging. The color is named, Encre de Desert—which is Desert Ink when translated to English. But take care since Montblanc refills fit only in Montblanc pens.

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry is a pioneering aviator of legend. Piloting during aviation’s Golden Age with much of his career consisted of flying and crashing in northern African countries. A prolific writer, as well, his personal life was as daring and tempestuous as his flying life. He died at age 38 on a combat reconnaissance mission during World War II in an F-38 Lightning. Quite a writer and quite an aviator—read his The Aviator, Night Flight, Flight to Arras  and The Little Prince to understand why.
