This Sketch Book contains 220 pages (110 sheets) of cream-colored 65 lb. (110 gsm) acid free sketch paper good for use with all dry media. It contains paper made from 100% certified sustainable forests: 50% bamboo and 50% reed. Bamboo is an endlessly renewable resource because of its very quick growth cycles and prolific heartiness. The sturdy binding protects artwork and keeps pages from sliding, for minimized smearing. The spine is designed for lay-flat drawing. The cover has an embossed faux snake skin texture. Excellent for sketching, classwork and writing.
