Vintage Drafting Pencil Advertisements

Here you will find images from magazines and other sources containing drafting pencils and related items.

If you are a pencil collector and would care to contribute scans of advertisements in your collection, please contact me and we’ll make a deal. If you are interested in higher resolution images or photocopies of my advertisements, email me and I’ll see what I can do. Not all of the ads in this gallery belong to me though, so I may or may not be able to provide you with copies.
