It seems Dalton Ghetti’s carved pencils have been the subject of lots of newspaper articles and blog posts over the past few years.

Living near the arctic circle, I first saw them this morning when my mother forwarded some pictures to me.

It’s lucky for him he doesn’t have to carve any Ös, Ñs, Øs or Ås, but I’d like to see him try a typeface with serifs.

My favourites are the saw and the hammer.

He seems to have a lot of very old pencils.  Maybe they just look old by the time he’s finished with them.
