This is a beautiful organic sketchbook, designed to be an inspiration itself. Its cotton Nepalese handmade covers, the watercolor drawing at the front, its perfect size for any artist level, and the sturdy Fabriano Artistico Cotton of 300 gsm, make it the ideal journal for any type of art. From quick sketches to detailed illustrations, and from a mixed media collage to a watercolor capture of the surroundings, this blank book is your perfect companion. It can serve as an artist sketchbook, a traveler's journal, a diary, a watercolor journal, an art journal or a notebook to jot down some intimate thoughts.
The covers are dressed with Khadi paper. This is a 100% cotton paper made by hand in the village of Tarihal near Hubli, in Karnataka, South India. Khadi rag papers are made from 100% cotton rag, which have longer fibers than linters that are generally used in papermaking. These genuine rag papers are known for their exceptional strength and durability. It is amazing with any media: from watercolor to acrylic and anything in between!
The front cover has a simple watercolor sketch by me. You can leave as it is or use it as a base for your own artistic experiment on the cover, At the bottom of the back cover the "Journal Shop" logo is stamped.
It has 24 pages of Fabriano Cotton Watercolor paper of 300 gsm, with rough surface to experience the total handmade feeling. The absence of acid guarantees the inalterability over time of the paper.

The paper is sized both internally and externally, making it ideally absorbent and retaining its nature unaltered even if scratched. Ideal for watercolour, tempera, gouache, acrylic, ink and drawing. It is also suitable for printmaking.
Its size is 29 x 20.5 cm (11.42" x 8.07") and it is bound with Linen thread usin the pamphlet stitch method, which permits the journal to open flat.
