The Blackwing Volume 10 features a matte grey newsprint finish and Blackwing's popular extra-firm graphite.
The Blackwing Vol. 10 is a tribute to Nellie Bly - and investigative journalists like her. In 1887, Joseph Pulitzer’s New York World tasked Nellie Bly, a yet unknown journalist, with investigating the insane asylum on New York’s Blackwell’s Island.
The resulting series, which she titled “Ten Days in a Madhouse,” is one of the earliest and most iconic examples of unbiased investigative journalism. It uncovered the brutal conditions in which patients were forced to live and shined a spotlight on the misconceptions surrounding mental illness.
Blackwing Volume 10 pencils feature a matte grey newsprint finish, dark grey imprint, silver ferrule, dark grey eraser, and extra-firm graphite. Blackwing Volume 10 pencils come in packs of 12.
