Stillman and Birn launch the Nature Trail
Sketchbook Exchange

We are honoured that our Zeta Series sketchbook has been selected by Nature Trails 2014, a prominent group of botanical artists, for a unique artwork exchange. Here is an explanation of the program’s concept: 

“Nature Trail 2014-2015: a Natural Sketchbook Exchange,
is promising to be an exciting collaboration of 15 botanical artists from all over the UK, Ireland, Holland, Italy and the USA. Every month each artist will complete a double page spread then mail it to the next artist on the list. Subjects to sketch and paint will encompass anything from the natural world; for example, feathers, shells, berries, habitat landscapes and absolutely anything botanical. Also colour notes, poems, any writing you would normally include in a sketchbook can go in, in whatever design.

The Zeta Series sketchbooks to be used on the exchange are made by Stillman & Birn with thick, smooth, quality paper perfect for nature studies. The size is a neat and small A5 (5.5” x 8.5”), just right for posting.”

We are grateful for the support of our U.K. partner, Jackson’s Art Supplies whose team made the timely launch of this project possible.

We will be posting updates periodically from the blog of Nature Trails 2014:’
