Great for sketching.

Comments about Strathmore 400 Series Sketch Pads:
I have this sketch pad in a variety of sizes. The 5.5"x8.5" is the handiest and most versatile for me because I can just tuck a mechanical pencil & a tough stuff eraser in the spiral and just tote it along in my bag. The 60lb is good enough for sketching and I've even done some dry brush watercolors in them. Though they are really for pencil and ink. Ideal for working out ideas, pre-painting, and jotting notes.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I Won't Use Anything Else
By Larry the Cartoonist
from Bay Area
I've used Strathmore Series 400 sketchbooks for decades. The quality has held steady. Great for pencil and ink roughs.
I ordered this for my oldest child. She has just gotten in to drawing and she loves it! The quality is great and the book itself is nice.

Always what I want when I want it
By Frank Page

I've used Strathmore paper for my entire career. It's never let me down... and the one time it did, the company made good on their quality. Dick Blick is always my go to place for supplies. I've been using them since before they had a website!

Tje quality of the sketch pads are of great quality. It was delivered promptly and well packaged. Having artistic grandkids I will buy more products. The price is very reasonable compared to other sites selling the same product. Thank you,

Frankly, I don't know if these sketchbooks are best in category or a fantastic deal, but I've relied on them for sketch and idea work for long time, and I'm glad Strathmore is still making them in the same quality as always.
Sketchbooks for students
By GA Art Teacher
from Kathleen, GA
I bought all the sketchbooks for my students this year. I got the 8x5 for my intro students and 9x12 for more advanced classes. I like that they have 100 pages and are spiral bound. I wish I could get the toned pages for the same price. I like the little ones for intro because they are a little less intimidating and 9x12 is a great size to fit in a backpack. The paper is a great weight and very sturdy to work with all media.
Perfect size for taking everywhere.
from Chicago area, IL
