Titus Surveys A5 hardback notebook by Nick Tankard
This lovely hardback A5-sized hardback notebook 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.
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.
Approximate dimensions of this A5 hardback notebook are: 21 cm long, 14.6cm wide, 1.8cm deep. It contains approximately 96 pages of 100gsm cream lined paper and it's finished with square corners and a ribbon marker.
