Got a pencil?

Goodness knows we love all kinds of alphabets and letters and working in letterpress we work with a lot of lead type. Well here's a lead alphabet of a different nature--a graphite nature! How cool is that? 
Dalton Ghetti is a talented artist who creates micro sculptures out of pencil leads.
I guess folks have been blogging about him for years but I just recently came across his work.
The level of detail is amazing. I love he incorporates the wooden handled saw into the wood of the pencil.
Google Dalton Ghetti's name to see more of his awesome work! It is all over the web. Now you will think twice about throwing out those old pencils, won't you?
