Interesting article in the Sun Sentinel newspaper about the future of pencils in the digital age as seen by the Italian owners of Dixon Ticonderoga pencils and art supplies.

I would agree that the art and coloring world has a good future for the pencil industry. They will need above average quality to compete in the art market. But IMHO the revered long standing Ticonderoga isnt what it used to be. I have bought better quality pencils for less money which write darker and smoother in the same class of office supply\school pencils. Yet Ticonderoga still sells zillions of them.
