Much like gum, I feel that the pencil is overlooked as a chance to accessorize. Seriously, if I had my pick, would I be a Criterium, a Venus, an Escolar? An Executive? Not sure. But they all sound so....1962 Desk Set. Yep. Loving that.
Not to mention the typography and the colors are the sorts of things that make me want to get emotional. Anyway, thank god for Bob Truby's Brand Name Pencils. A site after my own heart. Informative, obsessive, organized, and entertaining. Somehow, ephemera always stirs the imagination.
