Stillman & Birn is a brand associated with the art materials industry in the United States for decades. The original company was founded in 1958 by Philip Birn (1911 – 2004). Birn was a highly admired Viennese bookbinder, who brought his “old world” craftsmanship to a small plant in the SoHo section of Manhattan. SoHo is now filled with trendy shops, restaurants and residential lofts, but in the 1950’s SoHo was a center of light industry. From his plant at 270 Lafayette Street, Philip Birn pioneered the concept of the black hardbound sketchbook. The management team of the new Stillman & Birn organization follows its founder’s commitment to uncompromising quality and to developing new sketchbook forms that respond to the changing needs of artists.
