John F. Kennedy, one of the best-known presidents in American history, inspired the world with his dynamism, optimism and ambition. He was a brilliant speaker and a cool strategist who was revered like a pop star. John F. Kennedy carved out an unparalleled political career following his studies at Harvard and his time as an officer in the U.S. Navy. Though allowed only a short time as president, John F. Kennedy was a mover of world history and still stands as not only one of the most influential and popular American presidents, but also as a symbolic figure for a political philosophy embracing progress and new beginnings. In honour of the man born to be a leader of international stature, Montblanc created the Great Characters Special Edition. The edition makes symbolic references to the life of J. F. Kennedy in subtle design details. The deep burgundy coloured precious resin on the pen refers to both Kennedy’s famous Ivy League Status and the colour of his Alma Mater, the Harvard University. His initials “JFK” are engraved on the rose gold-coated clip, and the three rose gold-coated cap rings represents Kennedy’s three brothers. With every Great Characters Edition, Montblanc commemorates individuals who have broken new ground in the fields of culture, politics, science or the arts, and the impact of the legacy they have left behind.
