I am a fan of Oh Comely magazine. In this month’s issue there is an article all about rubbers:
This is just the sort of thing I enjoy. It takes me back to being a girl, to the days before smelly rubbers were banned and swopping bits and pieces from my pencil case. I read about all the different types of rubber and their uses and tried to remember if I’d unwittingly owned any of these tiny design classics. I had a Staedtler Mars Plastic, but then who didn’t. If only I’d been cool and had a Factis (great logo) or a Sanford Artgum Design (so American). Well, I think my eraser feelers were switched on. I was wondering around the local flea market this Sunday, when I spied a box lurking under a table. I bent down and my eraser dream came true.
