Blackwing Limited Edition Vol. 10

  • Box of 12

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.

Blackwing pencils Vol 10

Blackwing pencils come in various graphite. The wood casing around it is always beautiful. The limited edition ones makes the pencil extra special. Sadly, I cannot rate the Blackwing vol 10 yet from Domestic Domestic as I still have not received it.
