A comic genius

“Words and Pictures are yin and yang…”

Dr Seuss

Caran d’Ache was the pseudonym of the French satirist and political cartoonist, Emmanuel Poire. The name comes from the Russian word karanash, meaning pencil. Working in the 1880s for the newspaper Le Figaro, he created stories without words – what we call comic strips. His contribution to writing was recognised by the Caran d’Ache pen company, formed in Switzerland in 1915. They make pencils, pens, crayons and pastels, for writing and art. Their iconic pen is the 1969 metallic ballpoint, the 849. We see it here, in a vibrant blue, next to it’s swanky silver brother. Yes, neither are fountain pens, but they are cool enough for me. #swissmadeprecision #letsmakelemonade
