November 29, 2011

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Montegrappa, Italy’s most revered manufacturer of fine writing instruments, today announced the availability of the Frank Sinatra collection of luxury pens. The collection is part of Montegrappa’s “Icons” series which pays tribute to global cultural icons, who have achieved greatness in a variety of fields, including music, movies and sports. Previously released pens in the “Icons” series have honored Muhammad Ali and Bruce Lee.

For the pen collector and Frank Sinatra fan alike, no holiday wish list will be complete without the elegant writing instruments which represent Sinatra’s remarkable life and career. The pens feature a musical staff and a G-clef while the barrels and caps of each pen resemble the fabric of a sharp pin-striped suit. Using elements of blue as a nod to “Ol’ Blue Eyes” in the fountain pen as well as orange accents to celebrate Sinatra’s favorite color in the roller ball, each pen also features end caps engraved with the fedora logo used today by Frank Sinatra Enterprises to identify authorized Sinatra items.

Available in limited quantity representing the year 1915 when Sinatra was born, those who appreciate the unmatched craftsmanship of Montegrappa’s luxury writing instruments will relish the fine materials of resin, silver and gold used to emblemize this legend of American culture. The Frank Sinatra-themed pens will be offered as 1,915 fountain pens and 1,915 roller balls. An additional 12 fountain pens and 12 roller balls, each in resin with solid 18K gold trim; and 5 roller balls and 13 fountain pens, each with solid 18K gold trim and overlaid barrel, will be available at fine boutiques and approved Montegrappa dealers.

About Frank Sinatra

Sinatra is an American icon and one of the most recognizable and admired artists of the 20th and 21st Centuries, with a catalogue of music that is the soundtrack for our lives. Long acclaimed as the world’s greatest performer of popular music, he is the artist who set the standard for all others to follow. More than a singer–he was an actor, recording artist, cabaret and concert star, radio and television personality, and, on occasion, producer, director, and conductor. A beloved entertainer for six decades, Sinatra earned three Oscars, three Golden Globes, including the Cecil B. DeMille Award, ten personal Grammys (and a total of 20 for his albums), an Emmy, a Peabody, and the Kennedy Center Honors Award. A generous charitable contributor, he was honored with the prestigious Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. In addition, Sinatra was awarded the Presidential Medal Of Honor and the Congressional Gold Medal, Congress’ highest civilian award. Besides recording nearly 1,500 songs released on scores of records, he has starred in some 60 motion pictures.
