Blackwing Volumes 55: The Golden Ratio

The Golden Ratio pencil, the Vol. 55, is the latest limited edition Blackwing Volumes pencil. Using the fibonacci sequence is a mathematical ratio found in nature, art, and design as its inspiration. The ratio appears in the spiral of a shell, a flower, and gives symmetry in a balanced, organic way.

This ratio has inspired artists for centuries: Beethoven, Bach and Mozart. Salvador Dali and Frank Lloyd Wright. Sanskirt poetry features the syllabic patterns. This can even be applied in everyday life when taking photos using the "rule of thirds" to frame a photo.

The Fibonacci sequence is a mathematical series of numbers that approximate the Golden Ration. The body of the pencil illustrates this...The width of each color block is the sum of the widths of the previous two color blocks (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55mm) A simple and intriguing formula with a magnificent result that only Mother Nature could create.
