A tribute in dubious taste
I have to wonder what it means to ”celebrate” a photograph that documents human suffering by turning that photograph into an opportunity to market high-end stationery supplies.

Palomino Blackwing non-users
“No, Steinbeck, White, and Wolfe never sang the praises of the Palomino Blackwing, because they lived and died before that pencil came into production.”

The Palomino Blackwing pencil and truth in advertising
“The alleged rumor that John Lennon used Blackwing pencils seems to have its source in a comment on a Cal Cedar blog post, a comment naming Lennon as a Blackwing user. There is no evidence of a rumor about Lennon’s pencil use, and no evidence that John Lennon had a particular attachment to the Blackwing pencil.”

Duke Ellington, sombrero user
“A pencil manufacturer’s association of the Ellington name with its replica version of the Blackwing pencil is a matter of very wishful thinking. Others might call it misleading.”

Duke Ellington, Blackwing pencils, and aspirational branding
“It’s curious that as Moleskine steps back from the abyss of aspirational branding (‘the legendary notebook of Hemingway, Picasso, and Chatwin’), California Cedar has jumped in, head first, without even putting on a helmet.”

It feels strange to be turning up in the pages (or on a page) of the May 23 issue of Fortune.

Graphite-grey
I was (and am) very happy about hitting upon that phrasal adjective, which, as far as I could tell, had never been applied to the Blackwing pencil. (And then borrowed without attribution by California Cedar.)
