The Italian National Trust and Moleskine present a new special project, “The Hand of the Designer”. The book is bound in the classical Moleskine Folio book layout, A4, but with white cover. The publication will come together with a 120-page Moleskine blank drawing sketch-book, for notes and free hand sketching. “The Hand of the Designer” displays original sketches, given to the Italian National Trust, by 150 international designers, among them Bouroullec Brothers, Michael Graves, Hella Jongerius e Karim Rashid. The project is an intimate look into the creative process of the designer, and a celebration of the everlasting power of free hand sketching even in the AutoCAD® era. Quick sketches, graphic signs, paper collages, tools to express an idea: the freedom given to designers in choosing the materials to send allows an eclectic documentation.

Partners Alterstudio, in collaboration with La Triennale di Milano, Galleria Antonia Jannone and Sotheby’s. Moleskine is the publishing partner. Curators are Francesca Serrazanetti and Matteo Schubert, together with design expert Doia Giovanola.
