Part of my original aspirations for this blog was to create a kind of repository for the history of the Eberhard Faber Blackwing, including stories, photos, and anecdotes that readers would be willing to share. Though many readers have reached out through e-mail over the years (thank you for the media sightings!) there hasn’t been much in the way of readers’ own collections.
Consider this an invitation to share some photos of your Blackwing “nests” if you’d like—no matter how many or how few you might have (even if it’s just one pencil!). Based on the questions I usually receive, there are many people who would be interested in how long you’ve been using and/or collecting Eberhard Faber Blackwing pencils.
As far as privacy is concerned I’d be happy to post things anonymously, or include whatever details you’d like; it’s up to you. You can get in touch using the following address: blackwingpages [at] gmail.com.
