Q&A (5)
Q what colour is the paper in these sketchbooks?
A

The paper in these sketchbooks is a slightly off-white cream colour. If you are looking for a whiter paper then our own Cass Art pads use a brighter white paper. 

Q Hi, does these sketchbooks also come in plain black paper?
A

We do not sell The Ebony sewn Sketchbooks with black paper but we do sell the Daler Rowney Spiral Hardback Portrait Sketchbook which has black paper. 

Q What medium does this paper suit best?
A
Q Are the pages removable?
A

The pages are bound into the spine, like a normal book. You could tear pages out if you wanted to, but this would affect the overall function and look of the book as a result.

Q How smooth is the paper? Is it good for blending pencil? My current sketchbook is slightly rigid pages and quite hard to get a solid lines/colour packing
A

It's a very smooth paper, perfect for use with graphite & coloured pencils, as well as charcoal.

13th November 2017 Reviewed by Alexandra Baumbach I use this for general sketchbook work (including sketching (and other dry mediums), sketching in pen, watercolour and ink work, acrylic paint, oil pastel and marker pens) and am very happy with how it is coping. The wet mediums don't pull up the paper and the marker and ink pens don't bleed through the pages at all, It also holds the texture of any medium very well. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a all round sketchbook/journal with thick and strong pages. I have only used it for a little while but I find that the whole sketchbook is very robust from the pages to the hardback covers.
The only thing I can say is that if you use heavy mediums (acrylic paint, extensive watercolours, painting/drawing ink etc) prepare for the pages to buckle as this is 150gsm thick and I've heard that 300gsm or higher doesn't buckle. Personally, I don't mind the pages buckling at all, it makes each page more textured and thickens the sketchbook. It can be reduced a little bit by pressing the sketchbook under heavy books or wrapping a rubber band around it (like I do). Overall here's the basic pros and cons:

Pros:
- Thick and very robust paper, can take a lot of different mediums
- Pages have a tooth feel to them but are still quite smooth, so medium texture is kept but ink pens don't bleed (as far as I can see)
- Slight off-white cream colour pages (good for anyone who finds white pages intimidating, it also gives each page a background to work off of)

Cons:
- Pages buckle when using heavy mediums (if that bothers you)
