THE EDGE READING SERIES
at Bridge Street Books presents
Deep in New York’s Hudson River Valley, craftsman David Rees—the world’s number one #2 pencil sharpener (and author of Get Your War On)—still practices the age-old art of manual pencil sharpening. In 2010, he began offering his artisanal service to the world, to the jubilation of artists, writers, draftsmen, and standardized test takers.
Now, in a book that is both a manifesto and a fully-illustrated walk-through of the many, many, many ways to sharpen a pencil, Rees reveals the secrets of his craft. By the time you’re through this book, you will know how to get the perfect point on your pencil without injuring yourself.
DAVID REES first came to fame as the author of Get Your War On, a Bush-era comic strip composed from clip-art that he emailed to friends. It was eventually serialized by Rolling Stone magazine, collected into three successful books, and turned into an off-Broadway play. He is also the author of the workplace satire My New Filing Technique is Unstoppable. He lives in Beacon, New York.
HEATHER FULLER grew up in Keflavik, Iceland; Dale City, Virginia; and Henderson, North Carolina. She now resides in Baltimore, Maryland, just outside D.C. She worked in the DC area with non-profits on homelessness and poverty issues for many years and now practices veterinary medicine in Baltimore, MD. She is the author of Startle Response, Dovecote, and perhaps this is a rescue fantasy.
