I bought A LOT of sketchbooks in my life. You might say I have a thing for stationery and it wouldn't be too far from the truth. I work mainy in ink and watercolour, so all my efforts were directed to find the perfect sketchbook that will allow ink to flow smoothly and take a lot of watercolour layering, even very very wishy-washy. This one does all the above. I am truly impressed. The best thing? The paper almost didn't wrinkle at all, and after sitting in the sketcbook for some time, the painting is completely flat. What I would want - to be in complete heaven - is a larger format, a 30x30cm (or at least 10x10 in).
