500 Colored Pencils

We all know that you can use colored pencils to create art, but can a collection of colored pencils themselves be art?

Apparently so! Here's a beautiful yet stunningly simple arrangement of 500 colored pencils by Felissimo for Social Designer, a website that aims to crowdsource designs for charity causes.

Designboom has the story:

designed by felissimo for social designer this complete set of 500 colored pencils consists of 20 units, each pencil telling its own story with a unique name.

you cannot buy the complete set of pencils all at once, but you can receive them over the course of 20 months.

four different display methods let you keep your pencils at hand, while being displayed either as an artwork, or kept aside as a special collection.

the cases have been designed especially for the 500 colored pencils and are available in a limited edition.

The politically correct term is "pencils of color", according to the NAAWI (The National Association for the Advancement of Writing Instruments).

When i was younger I liked getting new Crayola pencils and crayons. because the were nicely arranged from black to white, and though a attempted to keep them in order i never managed to.
