For the followers of John Lennon, the Memorial Strawberry Fields of Head office Park is like the cemetery Père Lachaise of Paris for the congregation of Jim Morrison or like the rail of the ranch of Neverland for the “michaeljacksonians”: the true Mecca, this holy place for Muslims to go on pilgrimage at least once in the life to stone to the idol fallen.

Although Strawberry Fields occupies a zone of the park of two acres and half of surface, all the leadership and the flashes belongs to the mosaic in black and white of the floor with the word IMAGINE. If you have been in New York you have surely a photo lighting a candle, leaving some flowers or listening to the musicians that gather there to touch subjects of the Beatles in an almost magic atmosphere. In fact, all the guides of trip, even the more underground, recommend the place like one of the hotspots that one must to visit yes or yes.

Therefore no wonder that Montblanc had drawn inspiration  in the hexagonal forms of the mosaic to design the fountain pens “John Lennon Commemoration Edition 1940”, a special edition limited of 1940 pieces to commemorate the 70th anniversary of his birth. The clip, with form of arm of guitar, the symbol of the peace recorded in the pen nib and the word IMAGINE, complete the details of the writing pen, also available in version pen and rollerball.

I don’t know what would think John when seeing himself turned into a symbol of power and capitalism of which so much abominated in life, but sure that Yoko will be loved to be able to sign checks with the writing pen of his husband.

The fountain pen “John Lennon Commemoration Edition 1940” and the rest of the collection devoted to John Lennon are available in the boutique Montblanc of Paseo de Gracia, 99.
