Frank Gehry custom edition Moleskine

Art Gallery of Ontario solid graphite pencils

The weekend before last, I spent a very enjoyable afternoon at the Art Gallery of Ontario.

Visits to this art gallery are always great, but experiencing the refurbished building by architect Frank Gehry seemed to take everything to a new level. Even walking through a hallway was an amazing thrill.

At the end of my afternoon I took a look at the gift shop, and saw sets of woodless pencils and some custom edition Moleskine cahiers with Gehry sketches on the covers. I know this type of item can be hard to find and is appreciated by a lot of people. I bought a set to give away on the blog. I hope I’m correct that it may be of interest.

This is another commenter reward draw – only those who have previously left comments are eligible, and the WordPress blog software is set to only allow comments by those who have previously left a comment here.

So to win a set of three Art Gallery of Ontario woodless graphite pencils, three pocket Frank Gehry Moleskine cahiers, and three large Frank Gehry Moleskine cahiers, just leave a comment here before Friday, September 24, 20:00 EDT.

  1. Those are lovely =)

    I worked near the AGO this summer, but unfortunately never had a chance to go in. I did manage to visit Curry’s and Aboveground, though, which was a treat.

  2. Those do look awesome, and woodless graphite pencils are great both for sketching and writing. I wish more good pencils came in that fashion.

  3. Please count me in too. Went to the Music Experience building in Seattle some years ago: typical of the man with sweeping multi-hued metal plates sheathing the structure. Spent some time listening to two maintenance workers as they attempted to make a very minor structural change to the exterior. A frustrating and almost impossible job.

    The Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich has an excellent gift shop which among other things sells a lead holder with an enormously thick lead.

  4. Ooh fun. I’ve sworn off of Moleskine overall since their production shift to China (and since I make my own) but these are cool enough that I’m interested again.

  5. I´ve just received my Music Journal from Moleskine Passions collection and It’s awesome but, of course It is of a high Interest this Frank Gehry Moleskine cahiers, and absolutely the woodless Pencils, they look very elegant.

  6. Thank you to all who entered! The post has been updated with the draw result.

    To answer memm’s question, I regret that I don’t know the origin of the pencils.

  7. My local art shop has Koh-I-Noor Progresso and Generals Pure Graphite Woodless pencils, so they shouldnt be too hard to find. I’m guessing the gallery of ontario pencils are probably rebranded, but I don’t have a Generals pencil here to compare.
