The 520-page book “Faber-Castell Since 1761” has officially been released. So far I’ve seen it only through European booksellers, and its availability in the U.S. might be limited since it is written in German.
This link is an English translation of the publisher’s page for the book, and European Amazon sites allow you to see a bit more of the contents. There are a few booksellers on Amazon.de that will ship to the U.S. for as little as 5 Euros, which is a pretty good deal owing to the weight of the book.
It was interesting to see that the Blackwing was mentioned specifically in the table of contents.
And Vol II of Hemingway’s letters next month — good books this fall for pencil fans!
The two may have something in common, as Hemingway was purported to have stayed at the castle in Stein along with the other wartime reporters during the Nuremberg Trials.
