Long-term archival pad!

Comments about Canson Basic Sketchbooks:
I teach at a university and require my graphic design studios to use these as process books for notes, sketches, and collections of research for each studio class. I wish I would have done this myself as an undergrad; it would be nice to still have this work on my bookshelf! Also nice that the Canson sketchbooks have been available a long time so that students can end up with a matching set from all of their coursework!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This sketchbook is well made and is very durable.... I use this sketchbook for my drawing class and so I needed a book that could be easily transported and stored in my bag. It is kind of bulky but that is just because it is a 14x11" sketchbook. I highly recommend this sketchbook because it is easily to carry, durable, and is simply a beautiful sketchbook.
best blank journal on the market
from Bellingham, WA
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.
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
