Some interesting obscura buried in here, such as the Pilot H-555 and the red Mitsubishi drafting pencil with lead hardness indicator window.
Do we know whose collection this is?
Jeremy Ledford. I believe this person passed away in a couple years ago.
Also known as Germ and his Pencils11 Blog.
This Flickr page, along with his blog on the WayBack Machine provided me with some obscure pencil pictures.
Yes, I also read about his passing away (I think here). I guess he was ill, because he sold his collection some years ago (at least I believe it was the collection – he sold large convolutes and a pencil suitcase).
What a legend. 90+% of the time when the question “who’s collection is this” is asked it’s Germ’s.
George had a large part of his collection. He is mentioned several times in his blog.
Do we know if anyone has been charged with stewarding George’s collection? @nimrodd seems like the obvious choice due to geographic proximity…
