New Sketchbook sizes and Paper

AP Fitzpatrick's selection of sketchbooks and paper has expanded to include larger sketchbooks and some new rolls of economical Fabriano 'Accademia' paper.
In the sketchbooks, we now have larger 27.9cm x 35.6cm hardbound Canson 'One' sketchbooks (£10.10 + VAT), which are versatile and durable with 100gsm white paper.
The economical Hahnemule sketchbooks are now available in A2 size (£13.80 + VAT). These have a very smooth 190gsm paper and are glued along the top edge.
We are now also stocking the Fabriano Venezia Sketchbook in 10cm x 15cm (£6.20 + VAT) and 23cm x 30cm (£13.50 + VAT) sizes. The Venezia is hardbound with an attractive mosaic pattern on the cover, and has 200gsm off-white paper.
As well as sketchbooks, we have several types of Fabriano paper on larger rolls. The Fabriano 'Accademia' paper provides a good economical large paper roll, and comes in two weights, 120gsm (£14.60 + VAT) or 200gsm (£22.20 + VAT). These are 1.5m wide on a 10m roll, so a great way of doing large drawings without breaking the bank.
Finally, if you need a large roll of robust paper that will take heavy mark-making and repeated erasing, then Fabriano 4 'Liscia' could be for you (£34.60 + VAT). This is a sized 220gsm paper, much stronger than the 'Accademia', measuring 1.5m wide on a 10m roll.
