Titus Surveys A5 exercise book by Nick Tankard
This lovely A5-sized exercise book is produced exclusively for us in the UK. It features a print of Nick Tankard's dreamlike image of Sir Titus Salt, the founder of Salts Mill and Saltaire. The cover is printed on 280gsm card to give a flexible feel.
Nick's illustrations are produced using a cross-hatch technique with a black fine line pen. Layer upon layer of small ink lines are built up to form structure and shape, whilst other areas are left untouched in order to hint at a flickering light or billowing clouds. It’s a very time consuming process. He cross-hatches in one direction, then turns the image around and adds another layer to create shade and depth, whilst also leaving elements untouched to hint at light and space. The image may turn ten to twenty times until it’s finished.
The approximate dimensions of this A5 exercise book are: 21cm long, 14.5cm wide, 0.4cm deep. Each book contains approximately 24 sheets of paper.
