Pentalic Traditional Sketchbooks (aka "black books") are stylish, library quality books, but with blank pages for your imagination to fill! The paper is sourced from certified sustainable forests.

The Hardbound books feature a flush and sturdy binding that protects artwork and keeps pages from sliding, for minimized smearing. Artwork-filled volumes stand conveniently upright on a bookshelf. The spine is designed for lay-flat drawing. Hardbound books contain 220 pages (110 sheets) of bright white 70 lb. acid free drawing paper.

The Wirebound books use thick gauge, coated wires that will not easily collapse. Sheets are micro-perforated for easy removal. Double wire bound strength for effortless 360 degree page turning. Wirebound books contain 160 pages (80 sheets) of 70 lb. (114 gsm) acid free sketch paper.

The cover has an embossed leatherette texture. Excellent for sketching, classwork and writing.

Wherever you go, capture life as it happens with this art journal designed to fit anywhere. Each has 160 pages of acid-free, slightly toothy, recycled 74 lb. (120 gsm) bright white sketch paper with a 5mm dot interval pattern and is perfect for sketching, bullet journaling, notes and field work. Includes an elastic closure, ribbon marker, back page pocket and flexible, water-resistant Italian made cover.
