Stillman & Birn offers a sketchbook system that gives artists a choice of paper weight, shade, and surface, allowing them to choose the sketchbook best suited for their media and techniques.
Appropriate for studies rendered with dry media and ink, as well as mixed media artwork, the robust paper is internally and surfaced sized to provide exceptional wet strength for layering of wet media, lifting of pigment, and repeated erasing without damage.
Alpha Series — These sketchbooks contain multiple sheets of 100 lb (150 gsm) natural white paper with a vellum surface and a distinctive tooth. Ideal for dry media and light washes, the paper is both internally sized and surface-sized. The hardbound sketchbooks contain 62 sheets (124 pages) of paper.
