Paperworld 2012: Hahnemühle Makes Sketchpads and Notebooks the Centerpiece of its Trade Show Exhibit (English version)
Visit Hahnemühle at Paperworld in hall 4.2, booth E 10 in the "Creativeworld" area.
Artists and other paper fans believe that drawing and thinking go together. They commit their thoughts to paper using sketchpads and sketchbooks. These ever-present companions are an indispensable accompaniment to their everyday lives - regardless of whether they are used as workbooks or diaries. At Paperworld 2012, Hahnemühle will unveil new books consisting of highly interesting drawing and painting paper.
Just like your very own personal diary, the new Hahnemühle Sketch Diary can be filled up with drawings, thoughts and little mementos. The sketchbook's left-hand pages are lined, making them ideal for jotting down thoughts, while the right-hand pages are blank. The slightly rough paper invites artists to do drawings using lead pencils, charcoal, red ochre or colored pencils alongside related prompts, memories or ideas. The highly portable Sketch Diary is spiral-bound and perfect for drawing or writing on a flat surface, while the compartment set into the back cover is ideal for storing little mementos, loose notes, etc. The sketchpad is available with a black or cream cover and comes in A6, A5 or A4 format; each size contains 160 80-gram pages.
"The Hahnemühle Sketch Diary inspires me and fires me up every day. I've even tried gilding and watercolors in the workbook. In this way, each and every book becomes part of my private artistic archive," says Norwegian artist and Sketch Diary fan Trond E. S Indsetviken.
The Hahnemühle Sketch Booklet: A Flexible Companion Perfect for Purists
Black, with a finely speckled cover, this sketchbook is an ideal daily companion for those who value simple elegance. The flexible and slim sketchbook will fit into bags of any size. Its slightly rough, unbleached pages are suitable for artists drawing with lead pencils, charcoal and red ochre as well as crayons and colored pencils. Hahnemühle Sketch Booklets come in A5 and A4 sizes, with both versions featuring 40 pages of sturdy, 140-gram sketch paper.
"I really like using the Hahnemühle booklets when I'm doing outlines or studies on the go. They're really robust and they fit in all of my bags. When I'm in the studio, I use the books as a template or prompt for my larger-scale works," says painter and art therapist Ina Grundmann.
Kraft Paper Sketch Books: Strong Pages for Delicate Drawings
With its striking ochre tint, kraft paper provides artists with an interesting backdrop for their drawings with lead pencils, charcoal or ochre as well as crayons or colored pencils. The books' slightly rough pages guarantee good color absorption, binding artistic pigments to the paper. The book's ring binding allows artists to fold the sturdy cover back completely, enabling its use as a drawing surface. A pouch set into the back cover can be used to store notes or mementos, and a rubber band ensures the book stays shut when required. The Kraft Paper Sketch Books, which come in A5 or A4 format, are real eye-catchers thanks to their unusually colored 120-gram pages - 160 in each book.
"The kraft paper has a fabulous color which saves artists the effort of having to think about background. Even pastels adhere well to the paper, and can be rubbed in effortlessly without damaging it. And drawing with charcoal works well with this type of paper too," Susanne Haun, artist.
Kraft Paper Sketch Booklet: Sketch and Draw in Style
The Kraft Paper Sketch Book's little sisters also contain paper in a warm brown tone, ensuring high-contrast drawings. Robust and flexible, this sketchbook is a must-have for those who adore classy purism and love the feel of good paper. Lead pencils, charcoal, ochre, crayons and colored pencils, and pastels adhere outstandingly to the booklets' slightly roughened pages.
