How To Sharpen Pencils

How To Sharpen Pencils by David Rees

Humorist/artisanal pencil sharpener David Rees carefully guides us through the various #2 sharpening techniques and the history of the famed utilitarian instrument.  The book, half manual/ half comedic piece, is both instructional and hilarious.  Rees provides information on setting up a pencil sharpening workshop, pre-sharpening stretches, fancy pencil sharpening routines and of course, sharpening styles and techniques. 

Note: this volume is not recommended for fans of mechanical pencils or electric sharpeners!
