Many of history’s greatest ideas, stories and masterpieces began at its sharpened tip. Yet the humble pencil — the implement most of us learned to write with — remains unsung and under appreciated in an increasingly touch-screen world. I recently discovered two forgotten packages of pencils I’d purchased for a drawing class and was inspired to look at these graphite-filled pieces of wood in a different light.
