With its light-brown paper, this sketchbook reminds of a cappuccino with fresh froth. Therefore, it’s the ideal first choice for warm shades of colour. On the restrained background, colours stand out well and shine gently. By setting white accents, you can create wonderful contrasts. The smooth sketch paper, with its closed surface, is perfectly suited for working with Indian-ink pens, fountain pens and acrylic markers, as well as other water-based pens with minimum abrasion.
The dark-brown cover of the sketchbook nestles smoothly in your hands. Firm and discreetly grained, it feels like real wood. Bound in several layers and thread-stitched, all the pages sit solidly and allow the artist to work on two pages, across the centre seam. A brown bookmark ribbon completes the premium-quality features.
With 40 sheets / 80 pages featuring 120 gsm, The CAPPUCCINO Book is slim and an ideal companion if you are on the road or travelling. At the same time, it comes with enough reserves for many subjects. Available in A4 and A5, acid-free and with a high level of longevity.
Juan Linares, Spanish artist tested The Cappuccino Book in advance. “The brightness of the Cappuccino Book is stronger than the THE GREY BOOK, therefore it is perfect for capturing buildings or people’s faces.” On Juan’s Instagram account you can see his first sketches in the Cappuccino Book. Pedro Alves, Portuguese urban sketcher and Diana Kosczor-Pfeufer have also been inspired by the book.
Having thoroughly enjoyed sketching in the Grey Book, I can’t wait to try out the Cappuccino! The colour of the paper is subtle and inviting, I can see this being hugely popular.
Will have to try the Cappuccino paper.
Will have to try the cappuccino paper. Love your printing papers.
This looks very interesting – but when will it be available? This blog post is dated 15 August. It is now mid-October and no UK stockists seem to have any books
The Cappuccino sketch books would be perfect for my from-life drawings of white Camargue horses. But where can I get them from in London, UK?
