I can’t read much of it, yet it seems to speak very well to many interests of mine.
Red and blue pencils, leadholders, quirky office accessories – they’re all here, and featured prominently.
The magazine is in Japanese, with about 150 glossy pages crammed full of photos of woodcase pencils, mechanical pencils, leadholders, erasers, sharpeners, staplers, hole punches, rulers, and much more.
Yes, they have a page on Vernier calipers:

Looks like a great read, even for those of us who can’t read (Japanese). I see it is issue 1, and assume its therefore a new magazine? Any idea how often it is supposed to be published?
There are three issues that I have. Unfortunately, the publication details, if they exist, are all in Japanese. :-) Issue No. 3 seems to be from 2007, so it may be defunct, or on an irregular schedule.
Looks like a “mook”, the irregularly published, sometimes one off, Japanese hybrid of a magazine and a book.
The magazine was sold by amazon japan
We can view some example page.
I like how the items on the front page are arranged.
it doesn’t look OOP to me. amazon, JP lets you put it in your basket and checkout. looks like $13 each.
being a pencil and pen fanatic it seems like this is just the magazine for me. it looks amazing the detail. it looks as if its very well detailed. i know i’m only 20 but i believe i understand the fascination the japanese community may have with this magazine. :D
