Box of 36 Line-creation Implements: £1
Yes. just £1 for thirty-six lengths of wood, each with a hexagonal cross-section and a cylindrical column of graphite inserted lengthwise through its centre. When the implement has been sharpened by using a dedicated device for such purposes, a dark line will appear when the point comes into contact with material made in thin sheets as an aqueous deposit from linen rags, esparto, wood pulp, or other form of cellulose. Moreover, attached by a corrugated ring to the end of each of the implements is a cylindrical piece of elastic substance which has been constructed from the inspissated juice of various tropical plants, for the purpose of erasing a previously created line by applying the substance, with friction, in a zigzag or other movement over the said line.
