The International Eraser Museum

An Instagram museum: the International Eraser Museum, focused on “non-novelty, vintage erasers.” For instance: a Pelikan eraser with what appear to be separate sections for pencil, colored pencil, ballpoint, and fountain pen.

Thanks to Ian Bagger for pointing me to this museum.

[I’m not embarrassed to acknowledge that OCA has a Pinboard tag for erasers.]

I can just imagine those Soviet erasers being used to remove all trace of those who had fallen from grace. Maybe we need a Museum of Erasure.

But what wonderful variety and creativity in designing such humble objects!

Back when erasers were erasers!
