Blackwing Volumes Vol.XIX Collection
What are Blackwing Volumes?
Every quarter Blackwing come out with a new limited edition pencil as a set of 12 celebrating the people, places and events that have defined our creative culture. We’ve paid tribute to everything from John Steinbeck’s writing ritual to Ada Lovelace’s contribution to computer science.
What is this Volume?
On August 18th, 1920, Tennessee became the 36th state in the US to ratify the 19th Amendment. After nearly a century of lobbying, marching, and protesting, it was finally illegal to deny anyone the right to vote on the basis of sex.
The Blackwing XIX is a tribute to the 19th Amendment. It features a purple barrel and three-sided white and golden yellow imprint inspired by the suffrage flag, striped silver ferrule, and purple eraser. The 36 yellow stars represent the 36 states that ratified the amendment.
