Accordion Sketchbook Sets are a great gift for creatives and are ideal for making your own artist's book or exhibition display, as well as using as an art journal or sketchbook. Combine text and image, mount photographs or swatches, use them with pen, ink, light wash, or even mixed media collage. They're available in sets of 3 in a variety of colourways in portrait, landscape or square format.
Each Accordion (aka Concertina) Sketchbook has 4 pages (and another 4 on the reverse) of 200gsm fine grain, acid-free cartridge paper for writing, drawing, ink and light watercolour. The paperback covers are made from lightly textured 160gsm pastel paper. Colourways are inspired by nature; from warm grains to natural stones and garden flowers.
