Noris & Co 2

Well, I guess this is proof that the Noris is a very manly pencil, assuming that wood work is manly:

I saw this book in my local supermarket and spotted that the Noris is playing an important part.

Nice to see the Staedtler Tradition being featured in the latest Hobonichi video

A cineatic Noris

There also a cinema ad for the Noris, unfortunately it’s for the Noris Colour, not for the Noris graphite pencil



I also noticed that Monocle magazine, mentioned previously, has a penmanship supplement. Unfortunately there isn’t much there except a nice big photos showing a few pens, most of them expensive.


A Noris Print and Egg

Since we’ve been talking about the Noris, have a look at this Noris print from the Well -Appointed Desk

…or this Noris Easter Egg from Lexikaliker.

Moleskine Limited Editions: Pac-Man & Peanuts

Thanks to the Office Supply Geek newsletter and to Woodclinched I just discovered that there is a Pac Man Moleskine Limited Edition available. There are altogether four different notebooks and one set with a Pac-Man theme. Another limited edition, to be released between next week and November (depending on where you live) has a Snoopy / Peanuts theme. I have not had any ‘real’ Moleskines before …but since the Pac Man and Snoopy editions remind me of my childhood I might buy my one of these.
