Like it a lot
Comments about Canson Artist Series Watercolor Books:
Good little sketch book. Paper has great texture. Like that it lies flat. Has a nice solid back flap. Wish the cover was a little more special... cover is very blah.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Nice for quick sketches
from Little Rock AR
Very usable, but not the most substantial paper I've used.
Great for practice/sketching and color charts
I bought one for watercolor sketching for which it works very well. I am buying another one specifically for making color charts with my new sets of Daniel Smiths. This paper also works really well with Derwent Inktense pencils and pen and ink and wash, so I am buying a 2nd one for these mixed wet and dry media.
I will buy this watercolor book again!!
I'm using this watercolor book for use as a ground for mixed media, acrylic painting, watercolor painting etc! It has been holding up well for all the different projects in Life Book 2017! Thank you!
I use this when I just want to sketch/practice with my watercolors and it works great. It takes watercolors pretty well, it doesn't pill too easily, and doesn't warp too much and even if it does it normally dries flat. I say it's great for the price and size!

canson artists series watercolor book is really nice.
I am Artist from INDIA.I purchased many art materials from BLick art shop,Beverly Blvd Los Angeles shop,CA 90036 during this month.As i read few negative reviews about some canson watercolor papers,iwas doubtful about this artist watercolor book.But when i used and painted in this book,i got very nice results.Iam totally pleased with my work.The only thing i have experienced is,when the humidity is very low,that time any paper,any brand ,cannot give good results.I worked with keen observations under various humidity levels,and concluded that humidity plays important role in watercolor.I got best results from this canson artist book when humidity was between 35 to 75 percent.The canson artist book also gave me best results.Iam very much comfortable and happy with the Blick art materials.....Vishwas Dasnurkar (INDIA)

Pretty darn Nice
from New Orleans
This is a very nice journal-style watercolor pad, spiral bound with good paper. I can't say it's ultimately the best of the best, but for the price it is an absolute steal. The covers are very strong hard-board and the spiral is sturdy; the only disadvantage might be (I didn't think of this when I ordered, and it turned out to be a mild disappointment, but it shouldn't have been a surprise) that the spiral-binding means there's a GAP between facing pages, so if you wanted to compose an oblong landscape-proportioned painting across two pages you might have a mild optical hurky-jerky problem with the gutter and spiral being visually in the way. Otherwise, very nice little booklets, I've re-ordered them recently.

These were recommended by my art teacher who is from the Arts' Student's League in New York City. She is right; They are great for water colors. You can't go wrong with this product!
