Using colored pencils on black paper can really bring artwork to life making subjects appear more colorful and vibrant. These wire-bound Black Book Sketch Books from Derwent feature 40 sheets of 200gsm black paper. The heavy-weight paper is resilient enough to stand up to multiple layers of colored pencil and can also be used with water-soluble pencils for light washes. The sketch books are also ideal for use as photo albums or for scrapbooking with the black paper acting as the perfect background for treasured images. Available in A4 Portrait, A4 Landscape, and 12" × 12" sizes, these sketch books are 20% off every day.
