Wow. Irojiten means "color dictionary" in Japanese, and this 30 pencil set is exquisitely packaged as a set of three hardcover pencil "books", each specifically tailored to define the palettes of their place and spark inspiration yet to be written. Each set boasts 30 grade wax-based core pencils coated in an elegant enamel finish, divided into three stunning chapters: pale, vivid, and deep tones.
