Blackwing and the Philadelphia Museum of Art have teamed up to create this limited edition set of 12 golden pencils inspired by Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ sculpture of Diana which graces our Great Stair Hall. Each pencil is hot stamped in gold with Diana’s distinctive arrow, the iconic Blackwing shape even resembles an arrow shape when sharpened. Exclusive to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, these limited edition collectible pencils represent the first time Blackwing has used a golden eraser in one of their designs.
The Blackwing cult phenomenon dates back to the 1930’s and has been a long-time favorite of artists of all types including John Steinbeck, Leonard Bernstein, Looney Tunes animator Chuck Jones, and Disney animator Shamus Culhane. The Blackwing pencil is easily recognized by the unique rectangular ferrule and known for its quality, Northwestern Cedar body and smooth- writing graphite.
Perfect for writing or sketching, these balanced graphite pencils come beautifully boxed telling the story of the Diana statue and are perfect for gift giving. It's lead is placed at a 3B grade.

Blackwing pencils are inspiring. The Diana special edition is both beautiful and a perfect writing instrument. A great addition to my collection.
These pencils are SO beautiful! I feel like Royalty writing with them. Will surely order more...
Thank you! I’ve been happy with product and with service! I would order again from you!
Love Blackwing pencils, Love the Diana pencils. Love writing and doing crossword puzzles with them!
I have an embarrassingly large collection of Blackwings and am a Volumes subscriber - but this pencil beats them all. The cost is absolutely worth it but the S & H is the highest I’ve seen for a box of pencils.
