Volume 55 Pencil SetBlackwing
The Volume 55 celebrates the Golden Ratio, that can be heard in the arrangements of Beethoven, Mozart, and Bach. It can be felt in the syllabic patterns of Sanskrit poetry. It can be seen in the works of artists and architects from Salvador Dali to Frank Lloyd Wright. It can even be applied in your day to day life by framing a portrait using photography’s “Rule of Thirds.” It’s a reminder to slow down and savour the beauty around us. Each pencil contains a balanced graphite core and features a design inspired by the Fibonacci sequence, a series of numbers that approximate the Golden Ratio. The width of each colour block is the sum of the widths of the previous two colour blocks: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, & 55. The pencils are designed in millimetres and then scaled the design up to 1:1.175 ratio to fit the canvas of the pencil. A simple formula with a magnificent result.
