Dear Everyone ~
When I saw these notebooks at a shop in Manhattan several months ago,
I was a bitte smitten. I brought home a few to use … and am delighted
to announce that I’m now offering the watercolour notebooks
as well as the sketchbooks online, plus a few additional styles in the shop.
By the way, Kunst & Papier means “art and paper.”
These notebooks are paragons of utilitarian understated
over-the-topness. The pages are natural white, and incredibly versatile for
pen & ink, markers, colour pencil, watercolour, gouache & acrylic.
The watercolour paper is toothier (and heavier) than the sketchbook paper.
The watercolour notebooks are available in two sizes,
with your choice of a deep royal blue or black cover of lovely linen bookcloth.
Both sizes have 120 pages of 160 gsm paper.
In addition to watercolour, I have already tried micron pen
and sumi ink with wunderbar results.
Sizes: 9⅝ x 11⅞ x ¾ (large); 8¼ x 9⅝ x ¾ (medium)
The sketchbooks are available in three sizes,
all with natural bookboard covers,
and your choice of cloth spine in blue, red, or yellow.
All three sizes have 144 pages of 110 gsm paper.
Sizes: 8¼ x 11¾ x ¾ (A4); 6 ¾ x 6 ¾ x ¾ (small square); 8¼ x 8¼ x ¾ (medium square)
Not only have I sketched using a micron pen, a brush pen,
a fountain pen, and a Sharpie, but I have also watercoloured on this paper
with total success. I am pleased to report: No bleeding or showthrough!
I have always offered sumi ink in the shop,
and have just added it online. The vintage label
is handwritten by Emmy Kennett,
my nimble shop assistant.
The glass bottle is protectively packed
in a clear plastic sleeve, closed with a charming little surprise.
