This sketchbook is a staple in the department
By Art Department Office Goddess
Comments about Blick Hardbound Sketchbook:
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!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.

I needed a sketch pad. This one's good quality and Not pricey.

A great little sketchpad. A nice smallish size for quick sketches and doodles. Great for getting ideas out on paper.
Great for Price
from Washington D. C.
There are a lot of very similar options when it comes to buying a hard cover sketchbook. As a high school student, I find this to be the perfect size to fit in my backpack and still create decent drawings and sketches, and the lower price than comparable sketchbooks was a major plus.I have used brush tip pens in this book, and darker colors definitely shadow on the reverse side of the page (but does not completely bleed through). Other pens, like Microns, don't shadow at all. Over all, a solid sketchbook that seems to be bound quite well. Considering its striking similarity to other products, I don't think the price means compromising quality.
Love This Sketchbook!
I've used this sketchbook for just about everything...drawing, watercolor, collaging, doodles. I love it! It's a perfect size and I love the classic look. It's holding up nicely too.
