Unless you are an artist, you may not have had much call for coloured pencils since you left school, but this set is definitely aimed more at adults than school children. Called “Yesterday’s News”, the set of 12 coloured pencils are made from recycled Chinese newspapers!
Each pencil is produced using tightly wrapped sheets of newspapers, so the print features censored journalism, classified ads and table tennis results. They are supplied in a tube also made from recycled newspaper.
They would make an interesting gift and only cost £2.35 from the Days Gone By Shop.
