My new favorite sketchbook!
from Rosenberg, Texas
Comments about Pentalic Aqua Journals:
I love this product! This sketchbook is durable, high quality, and I love the landscape layout. It has been perfect for working on my travel journal watercolor sketches. I loved that it came with a travel brush-great value considering many travel brushes are much more expensive than this item! I will definitely be buying another once this one is filled up!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

from Salt Lake City Ut
This is the best sketchbook for watercolor I've found in the USA I hope you don't stop carrying it. England has the best I've ever found and this one is close.
I bought 2 and now I am ordering 2 more
Just the paper alone makes this art journal a great deal.

A Fantastic Purchase

My Pentalic Aqua Journal arrived a few days before a trip to New Hampshire. The size and quality of the Journal are perfect for recording travel memories in water color. I definitely will purchase another.
Great sketchbook and brush
from San Antonio, Tx
Great for mat for sketching. Paper is very nice, with perfect sizing, works great with pencil, pen, and watercolor. The travel brush works really well, holds a point nicely, and holds plenty of water.
Quality value and made well.

Best sketchbook for pen & watercolor!
By Mountain Mama
from Boone, NC
This is about the 10th sketchbook I've tried, and I've finally found one I love! It is hard to find a sketchbook that will work for both ink (pen) and watercolor. This paper easily handles juicy washes, calligraphy and felt tip pens, and even dip pens and inks! I have found the paper to be a bit thirsty which makes it harder to rub or lift out even nonstaining pigments, but I can deal with it by working a bit wetter than I normally would.Pentalic is coming out with larger sizes and more formats this fall (2016), so Blick, please carry those! And I could sure use an option without the travel brush also. (Hint hint! :)
