With Faber-Castell’s 250th anniversary three years away, preparations have no doubt begun for some very special pencil products from the world’s oldest pencil manufacturer.
Here are three of my ideas for fantastic pencil offerings I would love to see:
1. A historic woodcase pencil series, with perhaps five different eras (one for each half-century) of pencils recreated in their original dimensions and finishes with modern materials.
2. A series of pencils in an extensive variety of woods. (This idea from the catalogue Pencils)
3. A pencil box – a modern, adult pencil box meant for a desk that could house a gross of pencils, in wood with silver or platinum hardware.
Any other ideas?
