Blackwing Limited Edition No.155 Bauhaus
A limited edition Volumes release is announced every quarter. Each celebrates a unique piece of history, and each sells out quickly.
When Walter Gropius published his Manifesto of the Staatliches Bauhaus in the spring of 1919, he declared that "there is no essential difference between the artist and the artisan."
Celebrating their 100th anniversary last year this short intro is a great place to start:
The Blackwing 155 is a tribute to the Bauhaus School and its legacy of craftsmanship. Each pencil features a soft graphite core, Blackwing's first-ever black eraser clip, and a design inspired by the simple shapes and colours that have become a hallmark of the Bauhaus style. Though only 155 students graduated from the school, its philosophies have had an immeasurable impact on artists around the world.
