Pelikan Erasers

Every now and then Palimpest hosts erasers. They are the heroes and the anti-heroes of the writing technology world: rescuers and eradicators.
Last year I've shown a delightful discovery of a Pelikan fold-out ad of erasers dating from the 1950s. Another Pelikan fold-out resurfaced recently but this time the erasers have no faces or bodies. The advertisers have perhaps decided that anthropomorphic rubbers couldn't cut it any more. 

Compare with older version:

Different graphics, different font, same text

Happy deleting.
