This comes from a link my friend sent me today out of the blue http://www.penciltalk.org. Usually our talk is more along the fountain pen-and-ink line. But count me in as a pencil fan. You just can't go wrong with a sharpened pencil.
I bought these for another friend: tiny erasers from my favorite bookstore in Little Tokyo. This is her photograph from her new blog WHO IS MARIE TURNOR? (I'm flattered she liked them enough to feature them. She is, after all an expert on good taste.)
