Every Special Edition Volumes set of 12 pencils comes with a story. This is the story that goes with these pencils:
Blackwing 192 is a tribute to John Lennon and Paul McCartney and the estimated 192 songs they wrote together. The color prism design depicts the convergence of two powerful creative forces. A different Lennon-McCartney lyric is foil stamped on each pencil, for a total of twelve different lyrics in the set. (Includes extra-firm graphite.)
John Lennon and Paul McCartney combined to write some of the most enduring lyrics of all time. Their songs are ubiquitous, appealing to young and old, from generation to generation. Together, they have influenced the craft of songwriting in immeasurable ways.
As songwriters, Lennon and McCartney complimented each other expertly. Paul’s lyrics often evoked brightness and joy, while John’s supplied a more melancholy spirit. The result is a catalog of authentic songs that touch on a wide spectrum of the human experience.
These pencils also feature the extra firm graphite core found in the Blackwing Naturals Pencils—great for using on paper or fabric (they can handle a little extra pressure, and it's a little easier to get a super light line).
