In 1887, Joseph Pulitzer’s New York World tasked Nellie Bly, a yet unknown journalist, with investigating the insane asylum on New York’s Blackwell’s Island. The resulting series, which she titled “Ten Days in a Madhouse,” is one of the earliest and most iconic examples of unbiased investigative journalism. It uncovered the brutal conditions in which patients were forced to live, and shined a spotlight on the misconceptions surrounding mental illness.
The Blackwing 10 is a tribute to Nellie Bly - and investigative journalists like her - who keep citizens informed, and give them a voice. It features a matte grey newsprint finish, dark grey imprint, silver ferrule, dark grey eraser, and extra-firm graphite. The number 10 represents the ten days Miss Bly spent investigating a story that has impacted countless lives.
One of my favorite things are #2 pencils. I’ve tried them all and when I saw Blackwings for sale at Domestic Donestuc, I had to try them. They are hands down the best ever! I love that I can buy local and don’t have to get them from a big box store. Thanks for keeping such awesome stuff in your store!
There are my favorite Blackwings, period. I didn't buy from here because I wanted to try them. I bought them because I wanted more for my stash, and you can't beat free shipping! Well-done, Domestic Domestic. Thanks for keeping my favorites in stock!
