The Pencil Timeline

Pencil Timeline


The Blackwing Experience at the Art Directors Club in NYC featured a 60-foot long timeline chronicling the history of the pencil, from the year the first chunk of graphite was discovered to the introduction of the Palomino Blackwing 602. The timeline earned several design awards and was the centerpiece of the exhibit, so we’ve decided to bring it back in a big way this year. Come by the Blackwing Experience at the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity on June 25th to see the full-sized timeline.
