A Close Encounter

I transcribe from Thomas Mann The Magic Mountain as prescribed by Nemo of Mobilis Ink Mobili: A close encounter with a pencil:

Pencil used: California Republic Palomino HB
Sharpener used: Dux
Times pencil was sharpened: Six times
Notebook used: Hand*Book 130mgs Large, Cadmium Green
Book used: Thomas Mann, The Magic Mountain, trans. H.T.Lowe-Porter, Penguin Books, 1988, pp. 122-3.


  1. How magical! How elegant! You clearly don't need a Mann-uensis.

  2. Thank you, mein Herr, I merely followed your magical advice.
