Mitsubishi train pencils

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.

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.

  1. Someone in the Northern and Western hemisphere needs to distribute these beauts ASAP through an English-language site. Or French. I could handle French. :)

  2. Really cool looking set of colored pencils. Naturally if I were to get a set, I would never have the heart to sharpen them. Thus getting at least 2 sets would be the only reasonable option.
