Needing and wanting do not necessarily boil down to the exact same thing, but in this case, Ystudio has transformed an utmost simple and functional object into something desirable. The black paint covering the brass makes this ruler stand out in a fashion that one would not expect from the simplest of all office accessories. Leave it on, watch it fade, or scratch it off: eventually, the coating of this ruler will mark it as your own. An ideal gift for discerning illustrators.
