I’d like to thank Sean for showing me this Noris in the wild and for letting me post about it.
Well, I guess this is proof that the Noris is a very manly pencil, assuming that wood work is manly:
I saw this book in my local supermarket and spotted that the Noris is playing an important part.
A Hobonichi Tradition
Nice to see the Staedtler Tradition being featured in the latest Hobonichi video

A cineatic Noris
There also a cinema ad for the Noris, unfortunately it’s for the Noris Colour, not for the Noris graphite pencil
I also noticed that Monocle magazine, mentioned previously, has a penmanship supplement. Unfortunately there isn’t much there except a nice big photos showing a few pens, most of them expensive.
A Noris Print and Egg
Since we’ve been talking about the Noris, have a look at this Noris print from the Well -Appointed Desk…
…or this Noris Easter Egg from Lexikaliker.
A graphite Pac-Man
…and for all fans of graph paper and classic video games: The original notebook sketches for Pac-Man.
Shaun the Sheep is using a Noris. Who would have thought. Yes, it is a cartoon version of a Noris, but it is unmistakably a Noris. Nice!
I have added these images to the Noris in the Wild page.
This episode is actually from 2012, but I have never seen Shaun the Sheep before, so this blog post is a bit late. I only noticed it because I had a children’s programme on for the little one.
I believe that the use of the image, taken from Episode 10 Bye Bye Barn of Season 3 of Shaun the Sheep, shown in this blog post, falls under “fair dealing” as described by the UK Copyright service.
Another Noris in the wild. This time: during Saturday evening prime time on Channel 4 ..on George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces.
Upcycling expert Max McMurdo is using a Noris to design a floating home, built from a shipping container.
I have added this Noris to the Noris in the wild page.
I believe that the use of the image from Series 5 Episode 9 of George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces, shown in this blog post, falls under “fair dealing” as described by the UK Copyright service.
