Lecta Lends a Hand to Help Usher in 2018
From Rembrandt to Van Gogh, from Modigliani to Cézanne, Lecta invites us to experience 2018 hand in hand with 12 artists who portray the subtlety, strength, sensitivity, modesty and power of something as difficult to draw and as expressive as the human hand.
The calendar consists of 12 different pictorial styles and techniques belonging to French art collections in which hands are the protagonist, speaking to us and transmitting emotion in a unique way. Lecta’s 2018 HandsMadeArt calendar continues along the creative line that began with last year’s 2017 ArtFaces calendar.
The colors, strokes and detail of the artwork selected for the calendar are highlighted in the pages printed on GardaPremium Natural, Lecta’s new 2 side coated silk paper with a smooth surface and a natural shade from its range of premium coated papers for publishing.
A limited edition has been created for the French market, printed on Lecta’s Condat matt Périgord, a silk paper with extraordinary bulk and an exceptional extra matt surface. The French version of the calendar is aligned with the current “Des papiers à l’image de notre culture” (Paper, a reflection of our culture) campaign from Lecta’s range of Condat brand papers.
