Seven Unconventional Erasers to Celebrate Rubber Eraser Day

I roamed the stationery and specialty design shops in search of the new, quirky and amusing erasers

Since it’s invention in 1839 the rubber eraser has seen a rapid evolution — with new shapes and materials taking place, the eraser remained an essential tool to fix mistakes of students, writers, and accountants, among many others. April 15 marks its anniversary and in celebration I picked seven designs that went beyond tradition.
