Volume 200 Pencil SetBlackwing
These limited-edition Volume 200 pencils are a tribute to coffeehouses and the creative culture they helped cultivate amidst the uncertainty of post-war America. During the '50s and '60s, coffeehouses became synonymous with creativity and intellectualism, and gave birth to a literary movement: the Beat Generation. This literary movement, rooted in anti-materialism and the exploration of the human condition, gathered in the coffeehouses of New York and San Francisco to recite poetry alongside cups of black coffee. Each pencil features a metallic copper design inspired by classic copper coffee roasting machines found in many coffeehouses during that time. The roasting process begins when the internal temperature of a coffee berry seed reaches 200 degrees Celsius, transforming it into the familiar coffee bean. These pencils also feature a firm graphite core that is perfect for finding inspiration in a local coffeehouse.
