David Rees con How to Sharpen Pencils

Getting the right point on a pencil is really a matter of skill and expertise. Most people need to know how to achieve the perfect pencil point to match the job. Deep in New York's Hudson River Valley, craftsman David Rees - the world's number one #2 pencil sharpener - still practises the age old art of manual pencil sharpening. How To Sharpen Pencils is a book, a manifesto and a fully-illustrated walk-through of the many, many, many ways to sharpen a pencil. Delivered with pencil-sharp wit and hilarity, this is the authoritative guide to a dying art.

Review
'From his vantage-point atop Mount Obsessive, Rees is able to see far and wide, and the picture he paints there is both true and very, very funny.' - Boing Boing

'The book is powerfully funny … a stylistic high-wire act, and Rees never teeters.' - The New Yorker

'Dear Reader is plunged into delicious confusion ... gloriously irreverent.' - The New York Times Book Review

'How to Sharpen Pencils has been shortlisted for The Bookseller's Diagram Prize for Oddest Book Title of the Year. The judges said 'A long awaited manifesto to the fine art of sharpening one's pencil. An odd book, an odd title; but there's nothing odd about its inclusion on this year's shortlist. Irresistible.' - The Bookseller
'Everything you need to know about how to attain the perfectly pointed pencil in a manual that is both obsessively serious and deadpan funny, pedantic and philosophical.' --The Guardian

'Can I just recommend a brilliant book…about how best to sharpen pencils by David Rees who is an American writer and cartoonist and he's written a brilliant book, about 200 pages long about the best way to sharpen a pencil. It's one of the most fantastic books I've ever read because it goes into such details about how to sharpen pencils that by the end you suspect it's the work of someone who is going insane…I think the whole book is an exercise in displacement, he appears to be writing about how to sharpen pencils but clearly something else is going on... it's fantastic.' - --Stewart Lee
