    Such good quality

    I bought this for my university sketchbook, the paper is such high quality, the book in bound lovely and the leather front with the elastic banding keeps the pages protected well

    Perfect for what I want, and worth the price

    The paper is nice to sketch and write on, and the outside looks nice even after being knocked about in my bag. Also, the spine of the book is flexible enough that it doesn't constantly try to close while your in the middle of drawing in it - which is a personal gripe I have with sketchbooks, notebooks etc.

    Fantastic Sketchbook

    As an illustrator (currently studying at university) I have bought multiple copies of this sketchbook to use not only due to the excellent quality of the paper which is able to stand most artist mediums but for the fact it is so lightweight and easy to carry around to hold whilst out drawing. I know many professional illustrators who use this sketchbook and I can see why. Also for the price of this sketchbook it is definitely of value of money!

    Brilliant sketchbook!

    I used to purchase sketchbooks from the National Art Gallery in London due to loving the softer covers, but then I stumbled across Ryman's version of the same books and I found them great value for money. The paper is of a good thickness - I use a lot of Pentel Brush Pen ink to sketch my characters and life drawings, so it doesn't bleed onto the next page, the cover protects any loose sketches or sketches in the book itself, and for extra safety there is the band which stops them flying out or becoming damaged too. I use them for all of my sketch work now!

    Favourite sketchbook!

    As an avid sketcher I'm always looking for great/cheap sketchbooks. I think this one has grown to be my favourite. Received as a gift a year ago, it slowly filled up with my best sketches thanks to the paper, the soft cover and the elastic band. The paper bleeds ever so slightly with really wet inks but does so in an aestheticly pleasing way. The soft cover is very comfortable and works with you instead of against but doesn't make pencil drawings smudge as much as ring bound sketchbooks tend to do. This sketchbook has become the center piece of my workflow and many of my illustrations has found their origins in there. Simply great.

    Perfect for doodles, sketches or notes

    We've bought several of these A4 sketch books in the past. The elasticated fastener is perfect for quickly closing up and helps secure a pen inside too! Great price.

    Pretty Good

    I bought this a while back, during the summer, for watercolour painting. Now, you may notice, this is a sketchbook, but I've never been the type to adhere to paper types. And I can say, for certain i is alright for water colours. If too much water is used, the paper can peel, but for light, beginners water colour, it is absolutely fine. Another good tip is to be patient with it, as the paper is somewhat more resistant if you let it dry. But overall, a good journal and isn't for exceptional water colours, but alright for casual work.
