The lack of art and craft in the packaging of modern stationery is regularly lamented at this blog. A manufacturer who is bucking the trend is Viarco, who have launched a new carbon pencil that is beautifully housed.

    I have to ask a nerdy question: Can you tell what sort of knot they used on the thread?

  • Sean, thank you.

    Kiwi-d, hello old friend! The narrow wood casing of the pencils does look like a manufacturing achievement.

    Gunther, you are welcome. The product has many small delights, which I take as a sign of good design. The ligature is indeed very nice.

    John, thank you. Both eyesight (it is a fine and dark thread) and knot knowledge fail me. I might be able to take a daylight photo and share it, but I am away from home for a few days.

    If I liked the litho design -modern one- on Poppin pencils, what could I say about these… Wow! their presentation is great and “The narrow wood casing of the pencils” is awesome, I don´t remeber have seen it before, any other example of this fabrication?
