Paperworld 2012: Hahnemühle Makes Sketchpads and Notebooks the Centerpiece of its Trade Show Exhibit

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.

Sketch Diary: The Notepad and Sketchbook for When You’re on the Go

Traditional FineArt Sketchdiary 30-1-2012Just 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.
