Paper Type

I designed this handmade hardback sketchbook with 300gsm Saunders Waterford watercolour paper especially for artists, after I couldn't find one for myself.

The 100% cotton, mould-made, heavy weight paper is far superior to the cheap machine-made, wood pulp-based paper found in most sketchbooks. It is highly stable and durable, with a refined surface, resists warping with wet media, and can be worked on both sides.

As standard I use Hot Press Extra White because it is the most versatile surface; smooth enough for ink drawing yet textured enough for charcoal; suitable for highly-detailed painting in watercolour, gouache and acrylic, and oils too if primed first.  I also offer Cold Press Extra White for artists who prefer thicker, softer, more absorbent paper with a rougher texture.

12 pages / 24 sides, hand-sewn with waxed thread into a softback cover made from 300gsm Bockingford watercolour paper bonded to premium archival buckram.

Small and lightweight, it opens flat and is perfect for travelling or for smaller projects.

Paper size: 19x14cm portrait, with a watermark on some pages.  May be deckled/torn on all sides or torn two sides with one cut edge.

All books are entirely hand-made by me in my London studio.  If you need a specific size, cover or paper please get in touch.
