A new video explores where creativity can take us.
The Moleskine Art Plus collection is released, bringing a variety of specialised paper formats specifically designed for the artistic professions to the ivory-coloured pages and rounded corners of the classic notebooks.
Most notable is the brand new Sketch Album; a lightweight, portable format ideal for sketching on the go thanks to its cardboard cover and sketch-grade paper inside. With 88 detachable pages (72 in pocket size), sketches can be shared and framed easily, while its Squared format makes images Instagram-ready with no cropping needed.
With 25 different formats to choose from, each notebook in the collection varies according to paper weight and absorbency, as well as dimensions, cover material and page layout. Regardless of technique, profession or medium, there is a tool for every creative need. Those who work primarily with dry media will find the Sketchbook and Japanese Album paper most suitable, which is pigmented directly in the pulp to guarantee colour stability and resistance. For wetter media, the cotton contained in the cold-pressed Watercolour Album paper ensures absorbency on both sides of the page. And for altogether darker souls, the Black Page Album with its heavy paper weight is made to house collages and photographs.
Special page layouts feature in the Music notebook, which contains staffs ready to be completed with harmonies, melodies and musical ideas, as well as the Storyboard notebook, a format consisting of frames ideal for videomakers, film professionals and advertising directors. The B-sides of the paperband packaging feature useful measures for line weights and angles.
The video will launch on moleskine.com/artcollection on 18th February, exploring the infinite possibilities of creativity on and off the page.
