The Secret Life of the Pencil: Great Creatives and their Pencils Zoom The Secret Life of the Pencil: Great Creatives and their Pencils

The Secret Life of the Pencil: Great Creatives and their Pencils celebrates one of the world's most reliable tools - the pencil.

Compiled by Alex Hammond and Mike Tinney, and with a foreword by novelist and screenwriter William Boyd, the book is a collection of stunning pencil-related photographs, pithy quotes from the great and good: 'I use my pencils until they almost disappear' (architectural artist Stephen Wiltshire) and interviews with the likes of Sir Quentin Blake, Nick Park and David Bailey.

All sorts of pencils are featured, from the familiar Staedtler Tradition and the Faber-Castell 9000, to the more unusual Magic Pencil from Koh-i-Noor and the eminently practical carpenter's pencil.
