The Minimalist's Sketching Set


We have hoped to combine here a happy medium between pencil love and an indulgence for precision, two traits we find often come hand-in-hand as a pair. One might even say a certain level of OCD is de rigueur amongst stationery lovers. Of course there is a certain underlying desire for order, to start things over neatly and without mistakes.Ā 

For those with the sort of temperament we allude to above, and who aspire to a less-is-more lifestyle, we have put together this minimal but essentialist gift setĀ - sort of love child of Henri Thoreau and Norman Foster.Ā A crisp assortment perfect for diagrams and architectural drawing. The 12 pencil set includes 1 pencil in every softness grade between a hard H and a very soft B for a full range of uses, textures and colour. Use the 4 step sharpener to create the point you desire, often this will be a long tapered point as though fresh from the factory. Finally enjoy the very soft and lightly structured 25% cotton drawing and writing paper (also takes ink and fountain pen) bound in a hardback squarish book, covered in soft Japanese washi paper for a satisfying tactile feel, qualitative and smart appearance. Don't forget a highly performant and acclaimed black Japanese eraser, some say it's the best on the market.Ā 

This set includes:

- a hardback sketchbook
-Ā aĀ precision aluminium sharpener
- a fancy black, high performance Japanese eraser
- a 12 grade graph drawing pencil set

Each element can be purchased separately as well by clicking on the links.
Each set comes gift wrapped unless otherwise advised.

ļ»æPlease note that theĀ pencil set will be replaced with a box of 12 Kitaboshi pencils when out of stock.
