Roald Dahl was very particular when it came to his stationery. Whilst living in America he became very fond of Ticonderoga pencils and yellow legal paper, stationery staples in the USA. They formed an intrinsic part of his dedicated writing habit; so much so that when he returned to the UK he had them specially shipped over.
”There is a secret side which only comes out in a writer after he has closed the door of his workroom and is completely alone. It is then that he slips into another world altogether, a world where his imagination takes over and he finds himself actually living in the places he is writing about at that moment.”Extract from ‘Fee Fi Fo Fum’ - Roald Dahl on ‘The South Bank Show’ (1986).
Roald Dahl would sharpen 6 Ticonderoga pencils each day before he started writing. Pen your very own masterpiece with the very same pencils Dahl used.
