Traveling pencils

Always packing a pencil-and-pen first-aid kit just in case. This time it contains two Palomino Blackwings, one orange Palomino HB, one Kaweco mini fountain pen, a Rotring and a Staedtler 0.3 fineliner. The notebook is from Fabriano's famous Italians series (this one's Italo Calvino). It is all contained in a plastic vintage writing case featuring a native American on the front. As I said it's a first-aid kit which I don't expect to be using. The stunning views from my tent pitched near Brighstone on the Isle of Wight are expected to take up all my time.


  1. Could you be so kind of telling me - where I can buy those pencil caps?
    Thank you!


    1. Art supply shops should stock these. I got mine from one such in Notting Hill, London.
