The secret life of a pencil

Have you ever asked yourselves how are the pencils of important designers and artists such as Norman Foster, Tom Dixon, Philippe Starck or Paul Smith? “The secret life of a pencil” reveals this curious detail in a book of photos and texts describing and revealing the pencils that many masters of contemporary creativity use to work with. The idea was born in London about five years ago by Alex Hammond and Mike Tinney, who started “portraying” famous pencils celebrating this common yet amazingly charming and powerful tool.
