The School Noris in the Wild 2

As established in many previous blog posts the Staedtler Noris is THE common pencil in British schools. It’s no surprise then that (stock) photos used by British newspapers heavily feature the Noris.

I guess I should add this sighting to the Noris in the Wild page.


Inside Faber-Castell’s Pencil Factory 4

If you’re in the UK you might want to tune into BBC Two next Tuesday (19th March 2019).

The Inside The Factory series will visit Faber-Castell’s pencil factory. If you cannot wait you can watch a little preview on the BBC’s website.

The BBC seems to be rather keen on Faber-Castell. They also had some of ‘their guys’ working in the Faber-Castell factory for a previous BBC Two show and had a look at Faber-Castell and Staedtler for a previous Radio 4 programme.


I believe that showing the preview clip from BBC Two’s Inside The Factory in this blog post falls under “fair dealing” as described by the UK Copyright service.
