Sturdy, sturdy, sturdy!

Comments about Blick Hardbound Sketchbook:
I love these hardbound sketchbooks! My teen granddaughter, a great artist, uses up sketchbooks like they were going out of style. That's why she's so good. She's also careless with them, she draws on loose paper that isn't archival and produces incredible pieces on lined notebook paper. So I bought her a Blick hardbound sketchbook - and she filled it. She's filled a lot of them since then. They don't get lost. They don't lose their covers. They survive her school bag, her spilled drinks, her bed, the chaos that is her room. She's started organizing them by theme!I expect to buy her many, many more of these. I may prefer a wirebound one to fold the top cover back but these hardbound ones are perfect for a young artist whose approach to tools is "test to destruction." And they preserve her work!The paper is very good, the first one I got her is still in good condition and full of her early drawings. The paper hasn't yellowed at all and her earliest cartoons are still hilarious!The price is so good that I might have been getting her a cheap little pad with a quarter the pages - and that's no good when a child's on the road to professional mastery.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Exactly what I wanted.
from Atlanta, GA
Arrived quickly, safely and exactly what I wanted. Paper in this sketchbooks is beautiful.
Wonderful for secret sketching
from Boiling Springs, North Carolina
When I have to go and wait for a dentist or other appointment it is great to have this unobtrusive little black book that I can use for making quick sketches of other patients who are waiting. Since my subjects are sitting still they are easier to sketch getting the proportions right.
I use this sketchbook for my drawing class and its great! The paper is a nice material and over all very good quality! I wouldn't change anything about it!
Great price and great product!

We order these for our art club. We've used several different media in the books and they are holding up great. The students love the hardcover.

Like other reviews, the spine is not very sturdy
Impressed with the quality
from Houston, TX
I was hesitant at first to purchase this sketchbook, as I was unfamiliar with Blick. But I figured I would take a risk considering the reasonable price. I am more than impressed. It has good quality paper, the cover is sturdy, and it looks good.I'm using it for drawing with pencils and it is great for that purpose.Bottom line: I will be buying this again when I fill it up.

This sketch book is compact enough that I can pull it out on the L and sketch whatever comes to mind comfortably in a packed train car
Nice quality paper and it seems well-bound
I am writing the Song of Songs love poem from the Bible in two books for my two daughters and their new husbands. The paper is thick and cream-colored. The gold ink pen I use is not bleeding at all into the paper. I'm pleased with the books. Thank you, Blick. God bless.

I have a bookshelf full of these sketchbooks. They are a great value and my go to for recording ideas and thumbnails, essentially my brain on paper. The paper will take colored pencils if you need color.The paper isn't heavy enough to take marker or watercolor, although I have used both in them.
