The Secret Life of the Pencil: Book by Alex Hammond & Mike Tinney
Photographer Mike Tinney and industrial designer Alex Hammond worked in collaboration to produce “The Secret Life of the Pencil” – a book about the power of the ubiquitous pencil in the creative industry.
“The pencil and its ability to bridge the gap between hand and paper so effectively makes it exceptionally powerful, and as we’ve found, still much loved amongst the creative heroes of our generation.”
The duo reached out to other established creatives, asking them to share their writing utensils for a photo shoot.
“For each pencil we art directed the shoot to have a very subtle ‘nod’ to them or their work. When that wasn’t suitable, we let the pencil they had chosen to represent them talk for itself, documenting them in their purest form.”
It could be the perfect Christmas gift for the creative in your life. You can get a copy here.Photography Posted on November 30, 2017
