Comments about Art Alternatives Sketch & Draw Books:
I use this book for sketches while traveling. The pages also lay flat - which is a plus for me. Compact size, great elastic closure and nice pages. I also plan to use this as a reflecting art journal so hopefully it won't fall apart :D A few things I am not liking so far is the binding of the pages. The string which held the first few pages broke and the book opened to a torn page (which is glued to the edge of the binding). It could be just a bad batch.In conclusion, this is a good book for me in general. Not expensive and has a secure band to hold other pages together. I also called up customer service and they helped me with the situation. So my overall experience is good :D (Thanks for your awesomeness).
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love this sketchbook
I am an art student who loves to carry with me a sketchbook. And this sketchbook is perfect size to have around.

I use it with pens for Zentangles. The paper has a great feel to it and holds the ink with no bleed through. It is nicer than a much more expensive brand my instructor was using, so now she wants one too. I love that you can open it in landscape view so the binding doesn't get in the way of my hand. I also love the elastic band and the pretty blue bookmark ribbon. I carry it everywhere. I must have more.

Great pocket sized sketch books
I was looking for a little sketch pad to carry around with me all the time, i could draw something without having to carry a large sketchbook all the time. I found these and picked one up. i loved it instantly. it fits in my back pocket or my cargo pants pocket nicely. The band that holds the book closed also holds 2 pencils snugly along the books opening. I'm not sure if it was designed to do that, but it looks like it was, because the hard outer shell of the book covers about 1/3 of the pencils and that aids in helping keep my pencils in place. this feature is great because i only have to grab the sketch book and i know my pencils (light blue and black Col-erase) always come with it.I'm still using the first one, but i picked up about 4 more. i stick by the old artists saying "if you find something you like, buy a lot of them"One of the other artists at my studio has a different brand of sketchbook, that is similar in size and shape he felt this sketchbook had a heavier weight paper(which we both like)and it was less expensive then the one he had. so he was going to pick some up too. if your looking for a nice small sketchbook that can fit into your back pocket, cargo pants or purse this is a great one.
Take it with you anywhere!

This black sketchbook and notebook is small and very portable. It has a bookmark and a strap to keep it closed or to keep pen/pencil on the side. I keep it close at hand in case I want to do a quick sketch or jot a note to remember for later.
