Vintage Penguin novel pencils

A nice piece of vintage design with a story – these vintage Penguin novel pencils.

Here’s the story – Penguin started in 1965, but the company didn’t have a logo. So publisher Allen Lane sent office junior Edward Young to London Zoo to sketch the penguins for a company logo. And appropriately, here’s a set of six pencils based on the original design that Edward Young produced.

A very cool item and available online for £7.
