#tbt PENCIL is derived from the Latin ‘pencillus’, meaning ‘little tail’, but it was first called a stylus.  Isn’t that funny?  We’ve gone back to our roots and use them now, graphite-less, on screens. 
Nonetheless, lead was used first to write on papyrus, and we find ourselves still calling the inner core of a pencil just that.  Even though it is really graphite. 
But love of graphite came about because it made a darker mark than lead.  Yet, it was too soft and brittle to hold.  And so, sliding it into a wooden casing, and mixing it with clay was the natural next step.  Mass-production of wooden-cased graphite pencils began that would be sustained well into subsequent years, until present day.

Next week, we're taking a trip to New York City to meet with several authors, and with those immersed in the publishing world, and to get a feel for what's going on in the book world in the heart of it all. We're going to update the site (http://www.xoxoxpress.com/) and our social media with our findings and thoughts as we go along. Stay tuned!
