A pencil is a little wonder-wand: a stick of wood that traces the tiniest motions of your hand as it moves across a surface. I am using one now, making weird little loops and slashes to write these words. As a tool, it is admirably sensitive.

Over the past few years, the photographer Christopher Payne visited the factory dozens of times, documenting every phase of the manufacturing process. His photographs capture the many different worlds hidden inside the complex’s plain brick exterior.

Favorite tweet:

This Mr. Rogers-esque trip to a pencil factory in the NYT is beyond gorgeous. And this image from it is delightfully pleasing. https://t.co/JfZFV0YhdR http://pic.twitter.com/3BK2eCxwkV

Other parts of the factory are eruptions of color. Red pencils wait, in orderly grids, to be dipped into bright blue paint. A worker named Maria matches the color of her shirt and nail polish to the shade of the pastel cores being manufactured each week. One of the company’s signature products, white pastels, have to be made in a dedicated machine, separated from every other color. At the tipping machine, a whirlpool of pink erasers twists, supervised patiently by a woman wearing a bindi.

RT atmostbeautiful : 연필은 지극히 단순한 도구지만 만드는 과정은 그렇지 않다. 미국에서도 몇 안 남은 공장의 제작 공정. 사진만 봐도 재미있다. 특히 목재를 가는 굵기의 연필 여러 자루로 나누는 장면은 의외. Inside One of America’s Last Pencil Factories via @NYTimes http://bit.ly/2EzNboM January 12, 2018 at 08:49PM http://twitter.com/atmostbeautiful/status/951783179005911040
