the black pencil
"The Black Pencil was long and slim and new. He was owned by a schoolchild with whom he learnt to write and draw pictures. Then he had many jobs until eventually he 'grew' too short and was put away in a drawer.
There he met a blue pencil and a yellow pencil and together they had an amazing adventure."
The Black Pencil by Marcello Minale, 1968.
It's the Week of Vintage Children's Book Illustration over at Meet me at Mikes.
