Beautiful Tools



New York City graphic designer, Louise Fili, has created Perfetto Pencils based on 1920s and 1930s pencil cases collected in Italian flea markets.

Perfetto Pencils have two tones like the pencils traditionally used by teachers in Italy for grading homework.  “Red is for a minor infringement, blue for a serious offense,” she said.

I was struck by the beauty of the pencil box as well as the pencils.  Beautiful tools enhance the pleasure of writing.
