Great option for a good quality affordable sketchbook, German cotton blend paper with a nice linen cover, stitch binding and opens flat for sketching. Paper has medium to smooth cold pressed texture. Colours appear vibrant and stay true, paper is sized appropriately and accepts the colour pleasingly with some pleasant buckling during drying. Once dry, paper doesn't retain extensive buckling unless you are doing heavy whole-page washes. I really recommend this in particular for artists who primarily use watercolour on works of a small scale accented by other media.

Love the paper, and the format. The weight of the paper and the cotton content make it perfect for watercolor sketching, and, depending on how much water do you use, even more “finished” work.

Beautiful sketchbook! The cover is just sooo appealing. The paper is also good, has 25% cotton in it. Great size to put in your bag and carry around

As the weight suggests (i.e. 160) this sketchbook has very thin pages which warp quite a bit. I don't think this paper is suitable for layering techniques, but mostly for light washes. Hence only works for quick sketches. Also I would not use both sides of the sheets. The paper is white and smooth. I will make use of it for sure but will not order again as this is different to what I am used to in my watercolour practice.

I use this sketchbook for sketching outdoors. It works for me. The size is right for carrying about, and there are enough pages. I use pen and light wash, so I find the paper doesn't cockle too much. The binding is strong and the book opens out flat, which is helpful for scanning the picture and for making pictures which go across two pages. I like the surface, which is "NOT" or cold-press type texture, not entirely smooth and not rough. There's no pocket at the back, no bookmark, and no elastic band to keep it closed, but I'm am fine about that. I use bulldog clips to keep the book open when working and to close the book tightly to flatten the drawing when I've finished. The reason it's 4 stars rather than 5 is because: - the paper is not entirely opaque. If I write on the back of a page, it is just visible on the white parts of a drawing on a previous page. I don't normally draw on both sides of a page for this reason. - the paper is fine for many purposes but not for lifting watercolour off, to make clouds for example. It just doesn't lift off. It's a pity the cover is only black. I'd like a white or coloured cover I could write on. But in general I like this book and will re-order.

I love these sketch books. I don't tend to use both sides due to a little buckling but it's a lot of sheets and a good place to start when planning out work and keeping my colour mixing sheets contained in one place. Great value for money.

Really disappointed with this sketchbook, looks nice enough but the the paper is awful, you do expect a bit of buckling but this is hills and valleys, and the paper rubbed off when I tried to blend the colours, I didn't soak the paper, just added a bit of colour to a small pen drawing, it buckled so bad I couldn't finish the painting, for paint collecting and running into the buckles in the paper, the design also shows through on the other side, totally wasted my money on this,

LOVE THIS SKETCHBOOK!! I wish I'd known when ordering it was actually a Kunst & Papier aquarelbuch sketchbook! I love these and they're unavailable or very hard to find outside of Europe. SOLID construction and binding and the paper's such fine quality! If I'd known it was Kunst & Papier I wouldn't have hesitated so long. Well worth the shipping cost and wait! Thank you SO much for carrying these! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
