Best student sketchbook!
from New York, NY
Comments about Blick Hardbound Sketchbook:
We buy these every year for our students in our high school art program. We use them for our Opening Drawing Exercise, when students want to free draw after completing assignments and on field trips. They are easy to transport and the students love the look and feel of having a personal hardbound book to work in. Sometimes we have trouble with bleed through onto other pages but we have taught students to be flexible and work with that and also plan ahead.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

THE BEST THAT I'VE USED
THE BOOKS ARE WELL CONSTRUCTED & SERVE ME & MY ART PROJECTS IN THE BEST OF WAYS. THE PRICE WAS DECENT & COMPETITIVE.ALSO I APPRECIATE HOW WELL THEY WERE PACKAGED & PROTECTED. THANKS FOR ALL
Best at pricepoint.
from Los Angeles, CA
These books are relatively well made - some brands have oddly pasted pages but these are sewn in on the margin and so you don't need to worry about having problems with pages being fused funny. I use them for journals - they take ink/markers well, and also any pasted items like articles. Paper is solidly opaque as well.
very good sketch book
I really like this sketchbook. It has nice heavy paper that accepts ink nicely. I haven't used it for water colors but the paper looks like it would accept a lite wash.

This sketchbook is a staple in the department
By Art Department Office Goddess
This sketchbook has become the go to choice for several instructors in the Art Department. This sketchbook is required for all the drawing classes, ideas classes and as a note book for ceramics and painting classes. The hard cover protects the pages, the spine cracks with satisfaction as you open the book releasing the unmistakable fragrance of quality sketch paper. Works great with inks, graphite, charcoal and colored pencils. Not so great with water colors, but to be fair I do not believe that was ever the intended use for this sketchbook! I would recommend this as a great sketchbook to use for students, personal use or as a gift. The only suggestion I can think of to make it better would be to add an area on the spine and front cover where it would be easy to write a name, date, or class information. When you have a hundred or so stacked sketchbooks to review and the masking tape you suggested students use to write their information on has come off, organizing becomes challenging to say the least!
Hard bound sketchbooks
from San Antonio
Hard, sturdy book. The students love using them for scrapbooking.
LOVE these books!
from Bend, OR
I LOVE these sketch books. I use mine for everything! Acrylic, colored pencil, pen and inks, and watercolor (so far!). I even use it for notes in class and take it with me everywhere I go. The paper is nice and thick and the hard cover protects everything inside of it. I would and have recommended these to friends. Especially for the great deal!
Great for daily sketching, drawing; a nice tooth for a light weight paper. I've even use it for inking small drawings with minimal ink spread and it does't bleed thru the backside onto next page.
