In today’s post I will be reviewing;
- Manufacturer/Brand; Winsor and Newton
- Item number; 6679247
- RRP at time of writing: £5
Reason For Buying
Needed a hard backed sketchbook, I wanted a wire binding as I find it hard to hold open the sewn bound books when on location. especially if it is a windy day!
- A5; 14.8 cm x 21.0 cm.
- 50 sheets
- 170 gsm/ 80 lb weight paper
- Heavy weight paper; good for pencil, ink, pen & ink and light washes of watercolour
- Acid free
- Great size, portable without being too bulky or heavy
- Wire bound means you can fold extra pages out-of-the-way
- Super smooth paper
- Lovely for sketching, drawing and light washes of watercolour.
Not got any, this is my favorite sketchbook for location sketching.
Superb! Wipe clean cover, sturdy, robust and not too heavy. Have had mine years and it’s still in great condition.
Value for Money
Would I buy it Again?
Yes! Highly recommended for sketching.
I love everything about this sketchbook. I can fold it back on itself so only have the page I’m working on, to hold onto. The hard covers are especially good for field trips if you don’t want to carry a board with you. This sketchbook has a superb surface to create onto. Pencil and ink glide over the surface. You can watercolour onto it without much page warping, if you don’t put much water on. Perfect too for watercolour pencils.
