I hate buying paper online for my drawings. I like to be able to hold it and feel the paper; examine it like a monkey examines a banana; see its color. These are all vital things to determine if it’s the paper for you. BUT. I put my name on Canson paper—it’s fantastic paper.

FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE SHOPPING BUT DON’T KNOW TOO MUCH ABOUT THE PAPER

I don’t know about paper for pastels, charcoal (it’s not my best medium), watercolor, etc., but I do know about graphite or colored pencils for portrait drawing. So, this review is greatly geared towards paper for the purpose of drawing in pencil.

POUNDS—LBS

Notice how the pad reads something like 65lbs or 100lbs—something like that? Obviously, the drawing pad isn’t going to weigh 65 pounds. This refers to the stock. 60lbs is what I consider Sketch paper, and it’s usually the pound of paper you’ll get for a book called a Sketch book. But I draw traditional realistic portraits, and 60lb doesn’t hold up against all of the wear-and-tear the paper will undergo for my 12 hours of drawing on it. My minimum requirement for “finished” pieces is 80lb. 80lb is great. It’s not too thick, but not thin enough that it’s going to crinkle from a misplace stroke. 100lb is also very nice paper, and I’d suggest that as well.
If you are buying paper that is meant to be PRACTICE PAPER, you don’t need to get thick paper. If copying paper is fine for your purposes, I’d suggest about 60lb paper. For more finished pieces, get 80lb. With thicker paper, however, you tend to get less per pad (about 24 sheets compared to 100 sheets for something like 60lb), but SPEND THE MONEY if you want quality paper that is going to still be presentable at the completion of the artwork.

It's not very expensive, it's a good size, and there's plenty of paper for a month or two of drawing. If you press too hard, there will be a slight indent on the next page but it's hardly noticeable. It works for doodling and basic use, and I'd definitely recommend it.

Bought 2/26/14

I wanted to learn how to draw so bought a couple of books and pencils. This is the sketch book I have ever own. For the purpose of practicing drawing I found the sketch book excellent.

The book is sturdy and has held up being thrown in my bag for the past month or so. I find it easy to write on the pages and erasing is also ok. The pages have a good thickness to them. The pages are perforated so you can remove the pages with ease. The pages captures the light well.

I don't have any solid cons but I will explain why I only gave it 4 stars. I paid about $9 for this sketch book. I have seen other books for cheaper that seem exactly the same to me. I have blank book and a ton of notebooks, as a beginner these were probably good enough to start with and only cost $2 or so. I'm just speaking as a beginner now. I'm guessing experts aren't even reading these reviews. Even though I said the pages have a good thickness to them they also bleed through a little. I could very well be pressing to hard though. What this means is sometimes the back of the page you can see pencil marks and sometimes some feint lines on the next page. If the pages were just a little thicker this wouldn't be a problem for my heavy hand. I don't think this will be a problem for most people though.

So, I cannot really attest to the actual quality of the paper, as I am not an artist with that knowledge. I can say that the paper does seem to be of good quality- not too thin, and the book itself has held up over the past few months of school. I bought this for my son, as he needed a sketch pad for middle school art class and it met all the prerequisites. I will buy this again, should the need arise.

My daughter needed a sketch book for school that was 9x12, spiral bound and had more than 70 pages... I found that to be a bit of a task in our neighborhood! Amazon yet again saved the day! The sketchbook is exactly what she needed and a very nice quality. The paper is lovely and feels great to draw on. The binding and covers are sturdy and good quality. This is a bit expensive for everyday use, I think, but if you need, or want, higher quality, this is a great option.

I got this a few years ago from my uncle (who is also an artist) and have absolutely love it! The paper is nice and thick so if I press down with one of my pencils it won't rip, and the paper is smooth. I have drawn some of my best drawings in this book and would keep drawing in it, but I ran out of paper in it a few days ago. So now I'm trying to get another one! I would totally recommend this to anybody and everybody. Not a single complaint.

Now to go get me another.

I purchased this item for my mom for christmas at the last minute and she got it in plenty of time for Christmas. She really loved it and was so proud to have her own sketch pad.

The paper in this sketchbook is pretty good-- better than some I've used, but nothing extraordinary. I did like the light texture of the pages. The binding has given me some problems though. The rings bend very easily, and if they are not perfectly aligned, the pages catch and tear very easily. I made the mistake of carrying the sketchbook with me in my book-bag-- never doing that again! However, if you're careful with the book, you won't have a problem.

Nothing special, but not that bad of a product. Worth the money.
