Blackwing Volumes – Vol. 54 (12 Pack)

Palomino Blackwing

The classic Palomino Blackwing pencil is a re-edition of the Eberhardt-Faber Blackwing, reputed to be the world's best pencil and used by many famous writers and artists.

The Blackwing Volume 54 pays tribute to surrealism and creative exercises that force us to look beyond our narrow personal perspective.  The Surrealists used an exercise known as Exquisite Corpse to create collaborative poems and works of art composed of pieced-together words and images. The same exercise was used to design the Volumes 54 pencil.

First, they separated the pencil into five components (graphite, lacquer, imprint, ferrule, eraser). Then, they blindly selected the design for each component and assembled the results.

This Limited Edition Blackwing 54 features a rose barrel, teal imprint, silver ferrule, blue eraser and our extra-firm graphite.

The number 54 is a reference to 54 rue due Chateau in Paris, the birthplace of Exquisite Corpse.

Each set contains 12 limited edition pencils.

We recommend the High Meadows range of accessories for compatible pencil cases and rolls.
