I was very happy with all that I purchased and have no hesitation about ordering again from you. I also liked the way your site was presented the things that I needed were easy to fine. I also might mention that I received my order without any damage and it was packed so well. I also received my order a day earlier then you thought.

Purism

Feeling that Cubism had become decorative and lacking in moral order, two artists created Purism. Frenchmen Amédée Ozenfant and Le Corbusier developed the variant of Cubism that advocated a removal of expressionist influences and a return to admiration for the qualities of pure form. Mechanical imagery provided the iconography for much of their paintings. Function, volume and efficiency of form were the greatest concerns of the two artists, and still-lifes were their most commonly painted subjects. From 1920 to 1925 a journal was written to spread their theories. Despite their convictions, the style did not metabolize into a school of painting, and both artists were forced to compromise their vision, and develop into other forms of expression. Ozenfant relaxed his adherence to the tenets of Purism and contributed to color theory in England, as well as running his own art academy, first in London and then New York. Le Corbusier met with great success when he transferred his ideas into the field of design and architecture, but his work in these fields has also drawn him many critics.

I love these pencils, They are perfect for drawing and crosswords. I won't use anything else, and everyone keeps taking my pencils.
- Kathy K. in New Cumberland, PA
I love these! I've been using them by the dozen as journals. I write in black fountain pen, and there's no bleed-through of the ink from one side of the page to the other, and the paper has no trouble with any of the adhesives I've used (tape, Zots, glue) to attach photos and such. Covers are a great weight, and the wire binding seems like it's made for the Ages. I can't draw a stick figure, so I haven't actually used the books for their intended purpose (i.e. sketching), but the paper has a great feel, and, if it'll stand up to liquid ink on both sides, it should work like a dream with other media. I actually joined Mr. Art as a VIP because I was buying so many of these. There aren't too many products anywhere of which I'm this fond.

I've used these Stencils on everything from glass to wood and everything in between and they held up beautifully. I traced them and used them as stencils and they are still perfect~
