I love these sketchbooks

Comments about Canson Balloon Field Sketchbooks:
I love the wire bound sketchbooks. I like to keep my pictures in my sketchbook to see how I have improved and have sketchbooks I have had for years that are falling apart. So, it will be nice to have the sketches stay safe. The paper is a very good quality.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Quite professional, gave them as gift to our family artist, who stated they were top notch, & worth more than we paid. She loved them! :)

Inaccurate Description on Tag.
from Aurora IL
This was the first time I've ordered one of these small Canson Sketchbooks to try it out. For the most part I LOVE Canson products, I find their quality to exceed Strathmore.I'm a stickler for decent paper in my sketchbooks, it has to have a certain amount of tooth, and weight so that it holds up to erasing and maybe some heavy shading. The description on this sketchbook states that it's 50lb paper, which it is NOT, it's as light if not lighter in weight than the 24lb paper I buy for my printer.I'm very disappointed in this sketchbook.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: At Blick we always attempt to provide the best information possible to our customers. Paper weights given in lbs. vary by paper type – for example, a 50 lb. text weight is equivalent to a 20 lb. bond weight. To help avoid confusion, the paper weight is also given in gsm (grams per square meter), which is consistent throughout different types of paper. The Canson Balloon Field Sketchbooks do contain a lightweight sketching paper of 74 gsm (or 50 lb. text). If you ever have specific questions regarding our products, please contact our Product Information department at email@example.com or by calling (800) 933-2542. Our product specialists will be happy to help you with questions about art materials, product applications, and techniques.
