"Irojiten" is the Japanese expression for "color encyclopedia." Available in 90 colors, these beautifully crafted pencils are grouped by subtle color ranges into nine different "editions" and then published in unique paper color editions containing 30 pencils each. The three editions per set include Rainforest, Woodlands and Seascape.
The editions have an outstanding look and feel and give the impression of being a high-end “color encyclopedia.” The exquisite enamel finish of the pencils, the packaging, and the high quality of the product have made Irojiten an all-time classic in Japan. These sets are perfect for the artist as well as the collector.
