A deluxe, hardcover sketchbook with archival-quality paper that works for a variety of drawing media with pages that are large enough for you to take rough sketches all the way to final artwork.
The classic Watson-Guptill Sketchbook, first created by artists for artists, was released in 1993 and has since earned a strong reputation among recreational and professional artists for its durability, lay-flat binding, and premium pH neutral paper pages that are ideal for a variety of drawing media, from pencil and charcoal to pen and ink. Committed artists are increasingly attracted to the utility and enduring qualities that distinquish the Watson-Guptill Large Sketchbook including the sturdy hardcover binding that stands up to daily use and abuse, and the removable sticker. In response to demand, the Large Sketchbook is now available in a new color--ruby red--for artists who are looking for an alternative to the black sketchbook and want to make a serious style statement.

Customer Review for Watson-Guptill Sketchbooks:
"I have been an artist, who keeps a sketchbook, for over 20 years. This is without a doubt the BEST sketchbook you can buy. I have found that this sketchbook has beautiful paper, not too toothy or textured, but the cover and binding are the really exquisite part. This sketchbook goes everywhere with me and goes into and out of my backpack every day. I have never had another brand stand up to that kind of abuse and use. This sketchbook looks, after a year, like it did the day I bought it."
