thirty-eight: a letter for a pencil lover

I discovered Pencil Revolution a few weeks ago and have been working my way through the archives. People who revel in something have a special place in my heart. And honestly, who doesn’t love a perfectly sharpened pencil?!

Dear Pencil Revolution,

I was beyond delighted to find your nifty little blog. I adore pencils. I take great pleasure cranking a manual sharpener and I like having the flexibility of an eraser in case of blunders. So handy!

I eagerly await your review of the Enviro Stiks. I’m a big fan of Ticonderoga pencils (using one now), but I think I mostly like that they come in black. Black feels special, more grown up than the yellow school variety. I am also completely enchanted by black erasers. See, these are the kind of things only you understand! Thanks for keeping a little space on the web for us pencil-lovers.

Happy Sharpening,


Rifle Paper Co.
