Book Details

We have a big selection of writing instruments today—3D pens, mechanical pencils, dry erase markers, watercolor pencils, rollerball pens, and gel ink pens. Technology never stops. Fads come and go. But through thick and thin, there’s one writing instrument that’s still around—the pencil. This book relates the journey of this humble survivor. And what a journey it has been—Egypt, Rome, Athens, Siberia, England, Germany, the United States. The reader will discover that it takes a world of resources to produce the simple pencil.
