The Graphite Lists | The Erasable Podcast
Slowly but surely I will try all of these pencils.
The Pen Addict #160: Let’s Keep Being Addicts - Relay FM
in which Brad Dowdy explains how he paired every Field Notes Colors edition with a pen or pencil. This sounds like an interesting, fun project. I bet every Field Nut’s pairings would be unique and highly personal.
Going the distance, introducing the #NIXONHUNT
Late to share this but in case you missed it... There’s a special edition of Field Notes that was made for Nixon, and they were recently given away as part of a treasure hunt. You can see the locations where the prizes were hidden at Nixon's Instagram. Are YOU one of the lucky adventurers?
The Roman Alphabet in Asian Design | pencils and other things
I recently complained about the German phrases printed on the Rollbahn notebook covers here, and Sola of Pencils and Other Things gives us some insights into the deign element of Roman alphabets in Asian stationery. A very interesting topic.
Pentel Aquash Water Brush Review — by Nick Folz at The Pen Addict
I used to use these brushes for sketching and really liked them. I agree, it probably doesn’t hurt to carry them protected; I carried them in a ziploc bag. Reading this review made me want to get mine out and experiment again.
Pilot Prera Fountain Pen | All Things Stationery
I don’t own a Prera but M does, and I really like it. It’s not heavy, and the soft “click” of the cap does feel satisfying and luxurious.
Things I tried recently (and liked)
Dixon Ticonderoga Renew pencils
A bit thin for me but I was impressed! Darker and smoother than I expected.
Adding to my wishlist
Uni Style Fit Sanrio
Yet another Hello Kitty limited edition from Japan. But how cute is it that the refills have characters printed on them? Already out in Japan since mid-June, who knows when they’ll be available overseas.
Bands, Buttons, and Backrim Text! | Busy Beaver Button Co. Blog
Have you ever looked at the back of Field Notes buttons? See those texts along the rim? They’re called backrim text. I learn something new every day.
Hope you all have a wonderful week. And happy Fourth of July!
