John Lennon Pen by Montblanc

While overseas recently I spent a little time window shopping at an enclave of super-exclusive boutiques. One item that caught my eye was a collection of pens from Montblanc tied into Lennon's 70th birthday.

It is hard to know what Lennon himself would have thought about his association with pricey luxury goods -- like Dylan, contradiction and inconsistency were an integral part of his character and his charm. Perhaps he would have been disgusted, or perhaps he would have been delighted to find another way to move money from the fortunate to those in need.

Although I didn't spring for the pens, I did pick up this slick promotional book which has some fantastic visuals of the man...and his pen.
