Suitable for line drawings without feathering or bleeding.

Paper shade: Natural white.
Surface: Plate.
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

Great hardback sketchbook, the paper was a bit heavy for me, but that was my fault for not reading the discription properly. (Posted on 16/03/2017)

Great value sketchbook. The paper is not as smooth as a moleskine though. I would say it is ideal for pen and ink. The ink tends to stay on the surface a bit longer before it is absorbed, that is true for watercolour as well. The binding is great. I just wish the paper was smoother. (Posted on 12/02/2017)
