Two Rivers A4 Studio Pad - White Cartridge Paper
Rosemary & Co are pleased to introduce the Two Rivers Paper Company as our official friend of the month (October 2013). They are the smallest paper manufacturing companies in the UK and one of the smallest in Europe. Visit their website at www.tworiverspaper.co.
This A4 sketch book contains 50 sheets, the weights vary, but on average they will be 180gsm. The off white cartridge paper contains chalk and is none acidic, meaning they should hold their colour well. Although these pads are not strictly watercolour, they are suitable for line and wash work. They are also ideal for calligraphy and life drawings. The white is not strictly white, it is an off-white which results in no optical brightness. These pads are not offered to the general trade and Rosemary & Co are marketing them exclusively.
The bulk of Two River's production is at Frogmore Mill in Hemel Hempstead. The tiny machine which these A4 studio pads have been on dates back to 1902 making it 111 years old!
