Greetings, pencil fans!
My name is Jon Veley, and this past weekend I launched my new book, "The Catalogue of American Mechanical Pencils," at the Ohio Pen Show in Columbus (well, actually Dublin), Ohio. Whew. Books are heavy. Here's a shot from Sunday:
That's why I decided to start this blog: to update the world on what's been turning up since The Catalogue was written. I'm not sure how often I'll be adding material (I do have a day job that sometimes gets in the way), but I'll shoot for daily and play that one by ear. A couple of my fellow pencil fanatics have expressed some interest in contributing guest blogs, which sounds like a pretty good idea to me, too.
So stay tuned and enjoy!
