Towards the end of last year I had a request for some watercolour leather sketchbooks from my local stockist Walford Mill Crafts in Wimborne, Dorset. I took the opportunity to experiment with a slightly different binding style, new closure styles, as well as some new colourways.
I realised it was about time I stocked some Artist's Sketchbooks here in my online shop, so spent January continuing my adventures and binding a new collection of books with various papers for artists:
Watercolour: 300 gsm cold presssed, fine grain paper which is acid free, FSC certified and made in England. I've heard from a calligrapher that this paper is great for calligraphy; it's also thick enough for collage and mixed media and it would be good for writing or drawing if you prefer a really sturdy page.
Cartridge: 150 gsm smooth paper for all dry mediums.
Pastel: 160 gsm fine art paper in varied tones with a slighty textured surface.
You can browse and shop the new collection of Artist's Sketchbooks here.
If you'd like a bespoke Sketchbook with your own choice or combination of papers, and specify your perfect combination of leather and thread colours, please do get in touch!

All dimensions indicate external dimensions of the closed book. Memory Books have 128 pages of heavy paper & spacers for inclusions; Guest Books, Journals & Sketchbooks have Mohawk Superfine Smooth 118gsm paper, usually 192 pages unless otherwise indicated in the product listing. Pagination can be adjusted a little for bespoke books, speciality artists' papers on request.
