A tribute to a contemporary legend of music and art, who supported younger contemporary talent, as well as a tribute to the world-famous co-founder and lead singer of the Beatles and role model for younger talent. Lennons fresh, unconventional sound, full of experimentation and innovation, prompted thunderous approval from audiences everywhere and became the perfect vehicle for his resounding message of peace. Acting on his desire to do good for mankind and harnessing the power of love, John Lennon used his celebrity to mobilise ordinary people to do extraordinary things, opening new vistas of hope and inspiration all over the world. He was that rare thing: an indipendent mind. A visionary whose influence helped and shaped the intellectual mood of an era.John Lennon celebrated the 70th anniversary of his life and achievements in 2010. This John Lennon Commemorative Limited Edition 1940 (limited to 1940 pieces in honour of the year of Lennons birth) is patterned in translucent white lacquer and 925 sterling silver guilloche. The pen takes its striking design from the Strawberry Fields Memorial in New York's Central Park. The Strawberry Fields Memorial itself contains an eloquente tribute to John Lennon in the form of a round mosaic with the word Imagine at its center.
The silver clip is inspired by Lennon's guitar, and a silver plaque is engraved with Lennon's famous self-portrait. The cone is encircled by the release date of the song « Imagine » : 02/10/1971. The Medium (M)18K 750 gold rhodium-plated nib, a superb example of Montblanc craftmanship, features a finely engraved peace symbol standing for the ideals to which John Lennon dedicated his lifes work, and bringing the design full circle back to the memorial mosaic in Central Park, where people so often offer personal tributes by decorating the stones with flowers laid in the universal sign of peace.
