Pencils You Should Know traces the evolution of pencils over time and across the globe. From the humble, handcrafted pencil of the 19th century to the novelty writing implement of the 1990s, each object in this book tells a different story. This book features a selection of 75 modern and vintage pencils curated by pencil powerhouse Caroline Weaver, owner of legendary New York pencil emporium CW Pencil Enterprise. Pencil fanatics will find old favorites here—the original Blackwing 602 puts in an appearance, of course—and make exciting new discoveries, too. The long, skinny book was designed to emulate a brand new box of pencils. Vintage pencils and accessories are photographed against vibrant, colorful backgrounds and accompanied by Weaver’s insightful commentary. A pocket-sized love letter to one of the most important inventions in human history. This supremely charming little book celebrates the enduring magic of the pencil. Trace the history of the pencil over time and across the globe, and discover everything you need to know about this simple yet ingenious invention.
