In the first of a new series, writers and illustrators share their passion for all things stationery with Anita Loughrey. First up is illustrator Emma Graham.

SCBWI member Emma Graham revealed that she does not have a favourite pen but when it comes to pencils she prefers a 2B or 4B soft lead mechanical pencil.

She told Anita about the beautiful picture book she illustrated for author and US SCBWI member, Jessica Reino. Their book is called Symphony Hollow and is published by Clear Fork Publishing.

She starts each new project in an A4 spiral-bound Windsor and Newton sketchbook. At the time of the interview she was experimenting with 425gsm cold pressed Waterford paper by Cuthbert Mill. She loves the texture it gives to her work.

This article is abridged from an original interview on the Papers Pens Poets blog. You can find out more about Emma’s stationery passions there.

We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
