This luxurious sketchbook is not for casual sketching, but a special gift that will inspire your artist friend (or yourself) to record scenes from a vacation, capture precious moments by sketching a loved one (i.e. child) over time, or as a visual diary of one of life’s turning points—preparing for a baby, a journey, building a house. It will become a treasured heirloom that expresses the artist’s observations at a special point in time.
The 5 by 7.5-inch book is thread bound and has a black leatherette cover with rounded corners with a foil-embossed paint stroke on the cover. It made with handmade acid-free 100% cotton watercolor paper and has an expandable inner pocket in the back cover for storing notes, photos, etc... . It opens flat for painting ease and is safely closed with its colorful red elastic band.
The watercolor paper is hand-made by Twinrocker Handmade Paper in Indiana. The (32) 200# pages are so substantial they can be painted on both sides, and can withstand multiple washes and vigorous scrubbing for watercolor and mixed media. Deckled edges add a touch of elegance to every other page.
Twinrocker's cold press paper has a beautiful handmade texture that rollers can never duplicate.
