A friend of mine sent my boys these beautiful colored pencils from Venice. They are made by Fabriano, the famous Italian art supply company. They are the perfect size and shape–a bit chubby and three-sided, which makes it easy for little hands to do the tripod grip. And look at those colors! I have no idea how much they were but they are so beautiful. The carrying case alone is a thing of beauty. I’ve only found Fabriano paper in the US. Does anyone know where you can find these sets?
