This sketchbook is a great size for portability and is my go-to for on-the-go sketching. It has a nice texture which gives just enough tooth to grab the graphite, but not so much that it has a personality of its own. So far I've used this with graphite (both in standard, drawing pencils and mechanical, drafting pencils) and colored pencils. Water-soluble colored pencils work well, but care should be taken when applying water as excessive dampness does seem to cause the pigment to bleed through to become visible on the reverse. While I've not tested the sketchbook with watercolors, I speculate that it would not be a good choice for that medium, at least not if you wish to use both sides of the pages.

One aspect that really stands out to me about this sketchbook is its format. Being square it does not influence your creative decisions of expression (in terms of shape). My experience has been that I feel I have to "fill" the longer dimension of rectangular paper (to maximize use of the available, visual area). For example, if sketching an iris I would feel compelled to compose the image in portrait orientation so I would have the most vertical room, allowing for a larger completed size of the subject. However, sometimes you start sketching and don't know what will come out until you "get in there". The square format seems to relieve some of that subtle influence, as no orientation is implied -- you never get into the image and then realize it would have been better expressed in the opposite orientation.

Overall this is one of my favorite sketchbooks to date.

Love,love,love this little guy. The paper weight is great. Because the covers on both sides are solid you can draw just holding it in your lap and it is small so you can turn it every which way if you work wants that. The strap can be used to hold the page you are working in place so it doesn't slip around. Then when you close the book with it: it clamps the pages down so you don't have a bubbly
page if you used water on it. Besides the ribbon place marker, it also has a pocket in back for whatever you want to stash in there.

Great size and shape, and the paper is so thick for a sketchbook, it even takes watercolor and acrylic! I like how many pages it has and that it lays open easily, it doesn't try to close on you when you're working in it. I like the cloth hardcover and the elastic closure. I would love to see this in more sizes! =) I love love love this!

I love the square format. I trace a 4 inch square inside each page and create an ink drawing - Zentangle -. The creamy paper has a different look than bright white - sometimes I do a Tangle on a white tile and paste it into the book. Great place to keep my art. The elastic band is much higher quality than Molesk. and will last longer. Everything about this little book is perfect. No bleed-through. Nice surface. Good paper color and weight. Acid free too!

I loved that this sketchbook was square, not portrait sized. It's small enough to tote around, but large enough to feel you can do substantial sketching. I sometimes draw in ink and ballpoint pen, and the ink has not yet bled through. Comes with a convenient pouch in back to hold loose papers and found objects. It's a little pricey, but definitely more original and affordable than those Moleskines everyone and their grandmother carries around.

Was looking for a small sketch pad to take on vacation. I found many products to be too large and heavy. If traveling by air, you want something light. I really liked this product. The paper quality was good. I only used pencils and small sketches which was really all I had the time for. This was perfect. I find now, that I can toss in my pocketbook, beach bag, etc., attach a mechanical pencil to the "strap" and off I go.
