We have seen train themed pencils from Tombow. Here is a 2005 set of colour pencils from Mitsubishi, also honouring the Japanese Railway.
While Tombow used graphite, these are colour pencils.
Each box has a serial number.
The lid shows details of the trains depicted.
And mentions the manufacturer:
A handy (for those who can read it) map is enclosed. I haven’t taken it out of the plastic enclosure.
The pencil set is a delight, and would make an incredibly nice yet modestly priced gift.
The illustrations are exquisite – a different style, and perhaps even more varied and colourful, than Tombow’s similar offerings.
The subject matter and format blend extremely well. Some of the illustrations achieve a three dimensional quality.
