I'm using it for drawing with pencils and markers. I would like to see it with 160 gsm paper in this shape. I like cover very simple and the size is my favourite . Markers bleeding through because is only 100 gsm. I don't mind it. Please , make it the same but with 130 gsm-160 gsm paper. Thanks

This is my favourite day-to-day sketchbook. While it may not look the prettiest, it performs well, and frankly, I think it’s a steal for the price. First off, it’s a great size - compact yet well-proportioned. This makes it ideal for taking with you when you’re out and about. It has a hard, greyboard cover, so the pages are protected from whatever else is in your bag, and this also acts as a support if you’re holding it in your hand. It’s stitched and taped so it’s secure, but it also lays flat, so there’s no need for bulldog clips when you’re working. The paper itself is similar to cartridge paper in texture - strong and smooth - but when shading, you can feel a slight tooth. I have so far only used graphite pencils with it. I was pleasantly surprised by how well my jumbo Faber 8B’s laid down. You can press pretty hard and it doesn’t feel like the page will tear or weaken. It’s also very forgiving and lifts well should you need to erase areas. I have actually bought 3 of these so far, as I loved the first one so much! Simple, fuss-free and does what it says. Another great staple from Jackson’s.

I tried these for the first time recently and took them on holiday. It was handy to have a hard cover when out and about. The paper has a nice surface that took pencil very well. It has a light cream colour which I prefer to white. There is a slight show-through of heavy marks and I don't think I'd use these for painting unless I left blank paper between but for what I wanted they are perfect and I expect will be my go to sketch book for pencil drawing. I like the minimalist look - the label shown on the website image is loose inside the shrink-wrap cover so the outside boards are blank. The flat spine would take a label or written inscription to help find the book you were looking for if you have a number on the go.

I'm using it for around a year already and want to review what I love and don't love about it. What I love: lays flat, landscape format, simple design that can be decorated however you want, nice thick paper that suitable for pencils and pens, overall price of sketchbook and price per sheet that you get. What I don't really love but ok with: paper is too rough for fountain pens, ink will suck into paper and will bleedthrough it, unless you use pretty thin nib like EF or F and dry ink with it, but any other normal liner or ballpoint pen should be ok for this paper. Sketchbook pages cut flush with cover so they might get dirty on the borders faster and accidentally bend, I'm wrapping mine in rag when I carry it to preserve it, but if it just lays in your home it should be ok.

Love this sketchbook, easy to work on out in the field as it lies flat.

This is a lovely sketchbook, very good quality, and great that it opens flat without having to have a spiral binding.

Review

I love the simple styling of this sketchbook, the square format, the fact that it lays flat and the off white colour of the paper. Unfortunately it is let down by the thinness of the paper (100gsm). It is very see through and so you can't draw on both sides. In fact you can see through to the next page even if you haven't drawn back to back. I've had to leave blank spreads and glue pages together to improve it. The cover which is beautiful in its simplicity, is not fit for purpose. I've used the sketchbook for only 5 illustrations so far and already the cardboard cover is curving and coming away from the binding fabric. I'd love to see this offered in the same style but with much thicker paper, say 280-300gsm and with a sturdier glue and thicker card for the cover.

The paper is excellent, takes both pencils and ink well. Lovely texture to the paper, and nice natural colour. The binding allows for the book to lay flat which is great.

Very novel product, sketch books can be used in two formats thanks to the midori book binding technique.

Excellent sketching pad; good textured surface and robust enough to survive life in a rucksack pocket.
