An expandable yet portable sketchbook

Although it's portable and compact, your sketchbook extends to over 1 metre when fully opened! It has 12 x pages of heavyweight 200gsm fine grain cartridge paper. This acid-free paper is suitable for all dry medium artwork, as well as light watercolour, gouache and ink. Available in A6 small or A5 medium sizes, both portrait format.

A carefully made Concertina (Accordion, Leporello) folded book

The sketchbook's cartridge pages are hand stitched through the cover in Olive* waxed linen thread. The sturdy paperback covers are made from tactile handmade cotton rag paper, with turn-ins to keep the pages safely folded up for travel or archiving. Why not decorate the covers with your own artwork to truly personalise your sketchbook?

There are two joins on the reverse of the pages made with transparent archival hinging tape and you should be able to work over these in your preferred medium.

Sizes:

A6 small portrait: 15 x 11 cm, extends to 1 metre 26 cm
A5 medium portrait: 21 x 15 cm, extends to 1 metre 78 cm

Notes
