Stillman & Birn ALPHA Sketchbook - Hardbound - A5+ Landscape (9 x 6") - 150gsm - 62 Sheets

Only Stillman & Birn offers a sketchbook system that gives artists the choice of paper weight, shade, and surface type best suited to their specific techniques. With both internal and surface sizing, our papers have exceptional wet strength that supports the application of multiple washes. Similarly, just as the paper's sizing retards water absorption, pigment stays on the surface of the sheet. The result: remarkably glowing color!

Stillman & Birn bindings are equally rugged. Our hardbound bindings - stiff when new - are designed to be broken in. The spines get eased in and then lay completely flat, accomodating both two-page drawing layouts and flatbed scanning.

Bound in the United States, our sketchbook system offers artists a choice of three paper surfaces:

• Vellum – distinctive tooth, suitable for all dry media, and will also accept multiple washes
• Cold Press – Substantial tooth, enhanced wet and tear strength, suitable for multi-media artwork
• Smooth – Suitable for pen & ink, colored pencils, water-based markers as well as watercolors

The ALPHA series all has the following characteristics:

  • 150GSM paper weight
  • Paper colour - natural white
  • Surface - Vellum - distinctive tooth, suitable for all dry media, and will also accept multiple washes
  • Media: Dry media + multiple washes
  • 62 sheets (124 pages)
