Hahnemühle sketchbooks

I have a thing with square little sketchbooks. There are always a couple of them in my drawer. It happened to me once that I needed a new one and they had run out of them in my usual art supplies shop and I had to buy non-square one.

In 2003 I went to Metzingen looking for fabric for my wedding dress. I found instead a wonderful summer-wool black fabric, made by the first provider for Hugo Boss and minded for men´s suits.
