Zivago Pen Story
In celebration of the 55th anniversary of the Nobel Prize awarded in 1958 to Russian poet and writer Boris Pasternak for his legendary work, Dr. Zhivago, the Maison Caran d'Ache has created an exceptional Limited Edition writing instrument. It symbolically embodies the world of literary works, the quest for freedom, love, the immensity of nature and the meaning of a life.

A multitude of patiently applied layers of shiny black Chinese lacquer cover the entire pen, in accordance with a more than 3,000 year-old tradition carefully nurtured in the workshops of the Geneva manufacturer. This deep, homogeneous black is a reminder of the serene, timeless winter that freezes over Siberia, as described by Pasternak. It serves as a background to his lyrical saga in which love meets freedom, while revolutionary upheavals shake Russia at the turn of 1917.

The beauty of love, undeniably present yet impossible, bursts forth like a spark in the midst of this dramatic era. It is symbolized by a multitude of luminous stars that are reminiscent of immaculate snow. Scattered over the cap of the pen, they are made of white lacquer and surrounded by gilt ornamental motifs. Boris Pasternak's signature is gilt-engraved on the body of the pen, akin to a master's canvas.

Like a name on a painting, the signature of Boris Pasternak is delicately engraved into the lacquer adding the final aesthetic touch to the writing instrument. This dedication continues on the cap, also lacquered and dotted with golden motifs that make a striking contrast of colors and materials. The stars are engraved then coated in white lacquer, suggesting both the flakes of the snow that fill the sky to the horizon and the purity of the two lovers’ passion.
