Hahnemühle has listened to the requests of urban sketchers and introduced the “ZigZag book“. 18 pages of the finest watercolour paper folded in accordion style format; providing unlimited creative possibilities. Whether is the giraffe with the longest neck, the widest panorama or an Instagram-style pictorial, the ZigZag book you can do it all. Ideal for urban sketchers, daily painters and fans of watercolour, this robust sketch book is ideal for those that love to paint and draw while on the road: the ZigZag book is available in a square (14 x 14 cm) or portrait formats A5 and A6. The watercolour paper features a fine-grain surface on both sides and is perfectly suited for all wet painting techniques with brush or pen. The 300gsm weight ensures stability and thanks to the surface sizing, colours flow with ease and can be lifted without any problems. The paper is eraser-resistant and masking fluid and tapes are removed residue-free.
Rugged oversized book covers help to protect the content. Due to its durable cover, ‘the ZigZag book’ is inured to outside influences. An eye catching red band in the upper right corner can be used to close the book securely. The
rooster on the backside underlines the exclusivity of the Hahnemühle creative prowess.
Gris030, Berlin Urban Sketcher has already tested the book. His summary: ‘The paper is thick enough and the whole fanfold absolutely free of waves, event with a lot of water. Interesting folding, so that you can always paint straight/ on one level. The right format is available for every challenge.’
