For all dry media and multiple washes.

Paper shade: Natural white.
Surface: Vellum.
Sheet count: 62 sheets/124 pages.

With both internal and surface sizing, these papers have exceptional wet strength that supports the application of multiple washes. Similarly, just as the paper's sizing retards water absorption, pigment stays on the surface of the sheet. The result: remarkably glowing colour.
Stillman & Birn bindings are equally rugged. The hardbound bindings - stiff when new - are designed to be broken in. The spines get eased in and then lay completely flat, accomodating both two-page drawing layouts and flatbed scanning.

Bound in the United States, this sketchbook system offers artists a choice of three paper surfaces:

• Vellum – distinctive tooth, suitable for all dry media, and will also accept multiple washes
• Cold Press – Substantial tooth, enhanced wet and tear strength, suitable for multi-media artwork
• Smooth – Suitable for pen & ink, coloured pencils, water-based markers as well as watercolours

Review by Olga
Oooo! I love this notebook! It is ideal for me: for sketches in watercolour, for pencils (watercolour or not), for markers (but very carefully - they leak through sheets) and liners. (Posted on 24/05/2017)

Disappointed with the quality of the paper, not smooth vellum that I expected. Tried it with pen and light wash as I would use on other pads. (Posted on 11/04/2017)
