Comments about Blick Hardbound Sketchbook:
My International Baccalaureate use these to keep track of their work...they are perfect for keeping track of their projects and how they develop their skills in a variety of mediums.MY only complaint is that the spine breaks from the use and stress the students put on them, but the kids love to add their decorations and embellishments and reinforce this feature.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

How to make a child smile.
By Starving Mommy Artist
from Vashon Island, WA USA
Thank You. 5 kids and 1 mom got new sketch books today. They make a great gift. What a way to make a kid smile. Sharing art supplies. Drawing books, books on calligraphy, atelier drawing. Had two ink stones and one stick. One of the kids dropped it and it broke in half. Thought it would upset me, the opposite. I was like-Perfect. Thank you. One for you and one for you. It has been my pure delight watching the children fill the pages of their new books. Chose the black hardcover Dick Blick sketch books-No spiral binding. Very sturdy to stand the test of time. Markers, pens, pen tips, charcoal, brushes, paints, pastels. Every body's happy. Everything we need is here @ Dick Blick. 60% Savings! Outstanding!We will be back for more awesome art materials very soon. Very appreciative of the pricing, thank you for making all the smiles possible. Warmly,Starving Mommy Artist
Even better than I expected.
from Atlanta, GA
These were even better than I expected. The paper has a nice hand and takes ink well. Thick, sturdy book. I will definitely purchase again!
Like I said, always need a sketch pad
I use this as an art morgue. Any place, where information, or objects are kept for unexpected but possible future use is a morgue in the art world. At sinclair we find imgs. related to our subject and glue them into our morgue book. My morgue is less than 2 years old and the binding is coming apart. Now I am rough on stuff but still I need to put it out there.

Best student sketchbook!
from New York, NY
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.

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.
