Blackwing Vol. 1138 December 15 2015
It has arrived, the third Limited Edition Volumes release, the Blackwing 1138. It has been nicknamed the "sci-fi" pencil and film and science-fiction buffs know why. This pencil has a story to tell. Literally.
For the full story of this amazing pencil, Blackwing has a special post devoted to the process as well as other goodies here.
The Blackwing 1138 salutes A Trip to the Moon and all things sci-fi. The pencil’s striped barrel may appear random at first glance, but the sequence of blacks and grays is very deliberate.
Using a process known as movie barcoding, Blackwing condensed A Trip to the Moon into individual bands of color (shout out to Melvyn over at Arcane Sanctum for his awesome open source movie barcoding program). They then set out to put that onto a pencil.
Soul Paper is thrilled once again to be a stockist for Blackwing/Palomino and are dedicated to stocking Limited Editions including the Vol. 1138. But supply is limited and with the holidays approaching, they are sure to become collectible in a very short time.
