The Secret Life Of The Pencil

A pencil is a unique tool which enables us to unleash our creative thoughts and secure them. “The palest ink is more powerful than the strongest memory” as our ancestors said. Many creatives reach to a pencil when they come up with a new idea. No matter how advanced we get with digital screens that let us draw on them, pencils will always have an important place on a creative individuals desk.

The Secret Life of the Pencil by Alex Hammond and Mike Tinney shares with us the pencils of leading creatives in the art/design industry such as, Philippe Starck, Paul Smith, Anish Kapoor… Pencils vary from classic led pencil to $3000 jewelry like depending on the owners taste and style. The pencil reflect their owners personality and the book gives us great insight about that.
