The stand is light, big enough that either a Kindle or a hand back or paper back book will nestle into the space and be held securely by the prongs if needed. Once I get myself settled whatever I am reading stay right where I placed it. Then when my husband goes to sleep I can adjust the stand to block out the light and there are no complaints about being kept awake. A real plus.
For me this is a necessity. I have had several surgeries on my wrists and shoulder so holding anything while I read is not an option. Nor is it recommended for anyone if reading for any length of time. This made finding a good stand really important to me. This one by Art Alternatives is just perfect. Do yourself a favor, you deserve to enjoy your reading in comfort. An added benefit is it fits any sized cookbook just in case.
Other easels seemed to be made poorly with wood that looked rough and possibly splinter-prone. This easel is smooth and well-made - no splinters! In fact, it would be pretty easy to clean with soap and water if you got paint on it. It also lays completely flat which is marvelous! I could put this in a tote bag when I'm painting outside or going to a class, or I could lay it flat on a shelf and hardly know it was there.
If you're a person that likes to stand and paint, you might find this to be a bad choice. Plein-air painting would be difficult unless you plan on sitting somewhere. You could sit this on a table at home and paint while standing, but unless the table is high enough, you're in for some neck pain. It's worth purchasing, though, if you're new to painting and want something small to start out with, especially if you need it for an art class.
As a side note, at most you could fit a 9x12 inch canvas or sketch pad on here before it loses its purpose as a functioning easel. Anything bigger and you'd have to hold onto your canvas while painting it so it doesn't tip, defeating the purpose.
Very well made. I saw this at the university book store and loved it but it was pricey. I checked on Amazon and it was much more reasonable. I am very happy with it. I have very large heavy books this semester and I love being able to look over and the pages are not flat.
1) the shipping box is barely bigger than the product with no padding. Every time the box is dented to is the product
2) the easle is poorly constructed and was already cracked twice
3) ordered a replacement, that too was severely damaged.
4) it may be bamboo but it has a wood design paper adhered to the wood so it will eventually peel off.
Picture 1: Former broken spot that was glued back together plus an additional new crack
Picture 2: Circular cuts on the base
Picture 3: Paper that covers wood peeling off
Picture 4: Dented corner
Picture 5: Peeling, discoloration, uneven spacing
Picture 6: Peeling, discoloration, uneven spacing of the bar for the book to rest on
Picture 7: Horrible discoloration OUTSIDE WOOD PATTER IS PAPER NOT WOOD
Picture 8: Horrible peeling of the paper covering\
NO NOT BUY!!!!
I use it to prop up a notebook next to my 27" iMac in work. Extremely happy with the purchase; my fiancée will probably purchase one of her own, too!
