Everyone knows those little yellow pencils. On the golf course they’re called golf pencils. At Ikea they are Ikea pencils. At the Library they are called Library pencils. Those little yellow pencils are packed in little yellow boxes. There are 144 pencils in each box. Twelve dozen. A gross. Inside the box, from the factory to the final destination, the pencils create. The 144 individual pencils make 144 individual marks on the inside of the box. A beautiful and simple representation of order and structure.
