Palomino Blackwing Vol. 1138 Pencil
In the early 20th century, motion pictures were still in their infancy. They were seen as a gimmickk, something to pass the time between Vaudeville acts. That changed when a french filmmaker named George Melies proceeded to take his audience to the moon.
At 13 minutes, melies A Trip to the Moon was groundbreaking due to its length, intricate sets, elaborate costumes, and coherent story of six atronomers' voyage dans la lune. It is not only the earliest exmaple of a science fiction film, it alsoo laid the foundation for narrative films of all genres.
The Blackwing 1138 salutes A Trip to the Moon and all things sci-fi. Using a process known as movie barcoding, we condensed the entirety of the film to individual bands of colour and applied it to the barrel of the pencil. The number 1138 is widely used in the world of science fiction, appearing in numerous films, television shows, and comic books.
