From Comrade Brian in Portland Oregon, we have some great scans of vintage pencil ads. Unlike usual, these expand when you click them! Brian writes:
“I found a bunch of pencil adds in some old “Industrial Arts and Vocational Education” magazines from 1951, and thought you might find them interesting, so I scanned some for you. I thought that it was interesting to see these ads, and know that there was once a time and forum for the art of the pencil in its different amalgamations and uses.”
Many thanks to Brian for always being on the lookout for great pencil stuff!
