Back in 2009, Montblanc introduced its “Great Characters” series by paying homage to honorable figures in their respective fields such as Leonardo da Vinci, Alfred Hitchcock and John F. Kennedy. This time around it is adding a new member to the notable list with Andy Warhol. The latest installment from Montblanc features a pair of pens where one gains its influence from his Flowers piece dating back to 1964. The second pen honors Warhol’s classic Campbell’s soup can series. You can add one of these handmade pieces to your own luxury collection here with prices ranging from $750-$940 USD depending on writing tip choice. For a more modern approach to pen design, check out the Montblanc designed by Marc Newson.
