Ludovico Ariosto (8 September 1474 – 6 July 1533) was an Italian poet. He is best known as the author of the romance epic Orlando Furioso (1516). The poem, a continuation of Matteo Maria Boiardo's Orlando Innamorato, describes the adventures of Charlemagne, Orlando, and the Franks as they battle against the Saracens with diversions into many side plots. Ariosto composed the poem in the ottava rima rhyme scheme and introduced narratorial commentary throughout the work.
Originally established in Austria in the early 1800s. Turns out Jolly is a trademark of Brevillier-Urban, very much like Koh-I-Noor is a brand of L&C Hardtmuth. We’ve placed the Jolly pencils here to establish the original connection. According to brevillier.com, "Today the brands Cretacolor (artist materials), JOLLY (school items) and SAX (office items) belong to the Brevillier Urban & Sachs family."
