Winsor & Newton founders, Henry Newton and William Winsor were involved with the artists of their time - J.M.W Turner for example - and to this day. They have built the reputation on the quality and reliability of the products, combined with continual product development, improvement and innovation. However, while keeping true to the principles laid down by William Winsor and Henry Newton in the 1800’s actively embrace enhanced ideas and technologies. These heavy weight paper sketch books are suitable for pencil, pen and ink and light water colour washes. This range of case bound sketch books is available in two styles, one is a case-bound with a classic leather effect black cover and the second is a wire-o style hard backed sketch book. Both styles are available in a variety of different sizes.
Winsor & Newton Hard Back Sketch Book A3
Top Customer Reviews
I've found the pages falling out extremely easily (from the root, not the perforations) - I'm left handed, so my left hand rests on the previous pages which, and the glue that binds the pages to the book fails, rather than the paper bend.
While the book format looks far better and takes up less space than a wirebound book, I'll not be going for a casebound pad from Winsor and Newton again.
When the book arrived I started drawing in it and WOW, it's an amazing quality paper for a really cheap price! I'm in love with my new sketch book! I guess now my boyfriend is a bit jealous as I spend most of my time with my book than with him but hey!
I highly recommend this sketch book by the way :)
The cover is clean, black, smart and sturdy.
However the binding is totally unreliable. Half of them will quickly start shedding pages from the inside of the binding along the spine.
They use a double-sided tape method to fix pages down and it would appear that the factory gets it wrong a lot of the time.
If you get a good one (it could happen!) it's a lovely book that will serve you well...
If you get a bad one, you'll know after you've used a few pages. The lining paper splits from the spine, pages split apart and your book is lost unless you keep taping up the pages at regular intervals.
The problem is the binding method, not the perforations. That should be made clear. The perforations are a nice feature, they just happen to be on paper that's likely to fall out of the binding, that's all.
If it falls apart you'll have to tape it up fast and mind don't let your tears of frustration fall all over the page and spoil your artwork.

This is a very good sketch book, but if only the pages would not come away from the spine. Will be buying the spiral wire o version next time.Published 2 months ago by Crafty Sharon
Paper is good enough but the binding is crap, poor glue and no stitching and the book is falling apart after very little careful use. Hopeless.Published 3 months ago by Mr Consumer
Excellent. Love the thick pages and especially the serrated edges; this makes it easy to get a good fold on the paper enabling it to lay flatter. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Ember
