Write On and More is celebrating the new Autumn season by honoring  one of America’s first environmentalists, Henry D. Thoreau…

Henry David Thoreau lived in Walden Woods for two years, two months and two days in a cabin he built himself. He recorded his experiences in extensive sketches and diaries published in 1854. Walden, or Life in the Woods, became the inspiration for a new mode of life started on a little pond in New England. Few places in the world embody such a rich blend of ecological, literary, and cultural history. The American environmental movement had its roots in Walden Woods.

When in 1990 Walden Woods was threatened by commercial development, recording artist, Don Henley founded the Walden Woods Project to preserve the land that inspired Thoreau through environmental literacy and stewardship. In honoring Thoreau and the Walden Woods Project, Faber-Castell introduced a rollerball pen made of salvaged wood from naturally fallen ash trees in Walden Woods.

Faber-Castell donates a portion of the proceeds to the cause of preserving Walden Woods and enabling American Forests to plant a tree for each pen sold.

Each pen is inscribed with a passage from Thoreau’s ” Writings.”

H. D. Thoreau

Only 2,006 pens were produced and each one is individually numbered.  This fine precision instrument is prized by collectors and would make an exquisite gift for those who appreciate the historical and cultural impact of Thoreau.

Hold history in your hand and help protect an American legacy.  A limited number of pens are available at Write On and More. EHW

a pocket full of pencils, drawing, drawing, we just can’t get enough!

Rosie Flo’s coloring books (aka “colouring book” in the UK), are the most FABULOUS coloring books that I have ever seen. Choices include: Rosie Flo’s coloring book, Rosie Flo’s Animals coloring book, and Johnny Joe’s coloring book for boys with new ones added often.

Developed for her children, the designer, Roz Streeten, sketched intricate designs that her children could color. She also developed them so that heads, faces, arms and legs could be added by those coloring the designs. So stand back and let the next Picasso happen!

They are perfect paired with the Plumier Pencil Set which is a cylinder of colored pencils with a sharpener at the top.

A month ago we started with a dozen of four kinds and within 1 week they were gone. Developed and produced in the UK, they are hard to come by and appreciated by those that find them to buy and send. A new shipment just arrived – find them here!. EW
