Stillman & Birn Multimedia Art Journals

Stillman & Birn is a new range of premium multi-media art journals.

Artists use sketchbooks in many different ways – for recording ideas in the field, the beginnings of a drawing/painting or as art journals for finished work. Stillman & Birn have developed a sketchbook system that provides artists with a choice of paper weight, shade and surface type that is best suited to the type of work they are doing. All paper is internally and externally sized to provide exceptional wet strength that supports the application of multiple washes. In addition, the pigment stays on the sheet and the result is brilliant, vibrant glowing colour.

Stillman & Birn sketchbooks offer three paper surfaces:
* Vellum (Soft Press) – A surface with a distinctive tooth that is suitable for all dry media. It will also accept multiple light washes.
* Cold Press - Suitable for multi-media work. Excellent strength
* Hot Press (Plate) – Smooth surface suitable for pen & ink, coloured pencils and water-based markers.

These sketchbooks are available hardbound or wire bound. The hardbound binding is stiff when new and is designed to be broken in. Once the spines are broken in they are able to lay completely flat without any damage or deterioration of the spine. This allows almost seamless two-page drawings and easy flatbed scanning or copying. All wire bound books are double-wire spiral bound.

Stillman & Birn multi-media journals are divided into 5 series - Alpha, Beat, Gamma, Delta and epsilon. For further information on Stillman & Birn Multimedia Art Journals click here
