NYT at Faber-Castell

The New York Times visits Count Anton-Wolfgang von Faber-Castell, resulting in an article and a short film. I’m not sure what this kind of attention means. Are pencils the new typewriters?

Earlier this year, Sean at Contrapuntalism chronicled his journey to Faber-Castell headquarters in a great, photograph-filled post, The Stein Way.

[Count Basie had the better band, but Count Anton has the better pencils.]

The other separate posts have been taken down.

Oops — I used links from an earlier post about your visit. I’ll add the right one.
