5-oz natural full-grained vegetable-tanned, buffalo-hide leather cover, archival grade artist's sketchbook in A5 portrait format. The paper block is comprised of 46-page, 250 gsm, 50% cotton-content, Unica Cream paper from the legendary Italian paper mill FABRIANO. The paper is suitable for sketching and drawing with pencil, pastel, coloured-pencil, ink, marker, painting with gouache, acrylic and watercolour, printmaking ( etching, lithography and silk-screening ) and collage-making. Each signature of the paper stock is meticulously hand-stitched and bound to perfect alignment.
The sketchbook's robust leather strap-and-keeper design and page-marker ensure decades of use without slackening or unravelling. They are entirely saddle-stitched by hand - a time-honoured method in leather crafting - to ensure durability.
Natural grain pattern, unique to each hide, can be seen on the leather and will acquire a beautiful natural satin lustre over time. As the leather protects the paper stock for decades, the value of the sketchbook increases when artistic contents are deposited.
