3.0 out of 5 stars Traps for the unwary.. 18 Oct 2009
Good for price, of course this is just a blank sketchbook.
It may sound obvious, but when bought in conjunction with other artists' sketchbook compilations or the King Adz cook-book, one might assume it was a little more than bound blank pages with a funky cover.
All good tho, I needed one of these anyway!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good if you're doing pencil or marker 15 May 2013
I love this sketchbook, honestly, the best for my kind of style too where I like lots of pencil line, colours, markers, pens. It's great for all of those. Alcohol markers (eg. Sharpies, Promarkers, Alpha, Copics) bleeds a little bit through the pages but that's easily fixable. Just have a piece of paper under the page you're working on. Usually you'd a need specialised paper to prevent marker bleed but this sketchbook does a pretty good job on its own. The strokes never get blurred at the edges and remain sharp which is awesome. The paper easily picks up pencil as well and rubs out without marking the page. The only media that it isn't too good with though is water colour which I learned the hard way but you know, messy is beautiful. ;)
