The Writers Edition “Virginia Woolf” is oriented impressively to the literary heritage of the writer it is named after: 75 years after the publication of the novel “The Waves”, finely engraved guilloche work recalls Virginia Woolf’s most outstanding work and her eventful life. In the form of waves, the guilloche work covers the body of jet-black precious resin, underlining the lighty curved silhouette.

The most eye-catching feature is a faceted ruby on the gilt clip, symbolising the individuality of Virginia Woolf’s avant-garde style and the climax of her literary creation. The 18-karat gold nib reveals the tragic end of the successful writer: the two elm trees, under which Virginia Woolf found her last resting place on her estate in Sussex in 1941, are masterfully engraved for eternity an the handmade nib.

Virginia Woolf is considered to be one of the first representatives of classical modernism. She developed the story-telling technique of the “interior monologue”, which she used most consistently in her novel “The Waves”, which appeared in 1931. Virginia Woolf shaped this avant-garde technique with an expressly feminine subjectivity and autobiographical elements to create milestones in feminist literature such as “Orlando” or “Mrs Dalloway”.

There is no doubt that Virginia Woolf was one of the most pioneering and innovative female novelist of the early 20th century. Her rejection of Victorian conversations and her radical renunciation of literary traditions derived from an intellectually outstanding mind and a strong character.
