Blackwing Limited Edition Vol. 55 | The Golden Ratio

  • Box of 12
  • Balanced graphite

The Blackwing 55 celebrates the Golden Ratio. It's a reminder to slow down and savor the beauty that is all around. Blackwing designed this pencil using the Fibonacci sequence, a series of numbers that approximate the Golden Ratio. The width of each color block is a sum of the widths of the previous two color blocks (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34,& 55mm). A simple formula with a magnificent result. The Golden Ratio can be heard in the arrangements of Beethoven, Mozart, and Bach. It can be felt in the syllabic patterns of Sanskirt poetry. It can be seen in the works of artists and architects from Salvador Dali to Frank Lloyd Wright. It can even be applied to your everyday life by framing a portrait using photography's "Rule of Thirds."
