Santa Cruz, Calif.: Peter and Donna Thomas, 2002
2 x 2 ¾ in.
This sculptural book takes the combination of content and form to an extreme. A pencil stub, suspended in a wooded mount is surrounded by a short history and etymological description of both “pencil” and “lead”. The form here serves as a visual as well as conceptual case for the content, a short exploration of the lead pencil.
