best blank journal on the market
from Bellingham, WA
Comments about Canson Basic Sketchbooks:
This blank journal is the perfect size for keeping a daily journal if you're a writer because it's big and roomy. The paper has good tooth. It accepts ink, glue, and watercolours so I can glue or tape the detritus of my day as well as write longhand. The book fits in my purse or backpack and is light-weight. The plain black cover can be altered meaning you can glue pretty pictures on it and then cover it with a light-fast varnish. These books are made strong and resilient. I recommend these blank journals to all my friends.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

count on this thing!
from new jersey
i've been using these sketchbooks for three years now for my graphic design class and have not switched to any other brand! it takes different media very well such as a full range of graphite, charcoal, colored pencils, etc. just one criticism: it doesn't take to markers like copic very well as it will bleed heavily through the page, but besides that, it's great!

Canson basic sketchbook
from Portsmouth, NH
I sketch an hour a day and use three of these sketchbooks/week. I buy them in pre-packaged bundles of three. The paper takes quality 4b pencils very well. The color is a nice soft white. The proportions of the page always seem to have a little more space for extending the drawings on the edges of the paper. The thickness of the book gives enough paper without being bulky. I work standing up in museums for hours at a time and don't find this book to be heavy to hold and draw in for extended periods. The cover is protective without being inflexible. The price is good

These scetch books are great for all my crazy ideas, designs, drawings etc. Blank pages inspire me to fill them up and who knows what can crawl off those pages!

Not for ink
By Fountain Pen User
It probably works ok for sketching using pencil -- it is well constructed and the paper is reasonably heavy. However, it is not a good choice for ink. Writing on this with a fountain pen the ink feathers terribly. The paper quality is comparable to low grade printer paper.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Sketchbook or Journal these are great
By Bill D
from San Diego
It is really hard to find a good unlined high quality book to journal or do art in, but Canson makes just such a product.I have been using the Canson Basic Sketchbooks for many years now for journaling and other writing projects. The size that I purchase fits nicely on my bookshelves. They have a tight binding, and are still made in the USA which is an added bonus.
