Bob Truby is a dedicated pencil collector. His online gallery features thousands of pencils from more than 100 different pencil brands. From Bob's welcome message:
As both an art teacher and a pencil collector, I desire this site to be a visual encounter with the incredibly diverse world of brand name pencils. I hope you will be amazed at the scheer number of pencil brands once produced in the USA and abroad. Sadly those days are over and the craftsmanship, skill and pride once put into the ordinary pencil is but a thing of the past. This site salutes two USA Pencil Companies: General and the Musgrave Pencil Companies for their continued efforts to supply our basic writing needs.
