Sorry I didn't buy a bigger one now. This is a sturdy art book. Strong back complete with elastic to keep it closed this is useful if you're travelling. This small size is handy to pop in your pocket or even handbag. Beryl Lucy (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 3 Sep 2014
The paper has just the right amount of tooth (similar to the German kunst papier). The binding makes it the perfect choice for quick sketches while sitting at the desk as it lays flat. The hard cover makes it comfortable to use it while travelling or outdoors. Raymond (Norwich, United Kingdom) on 27 Oct 2014
the magnetic closing mechanism gets in the way when you are trying to draw in it - it doesn't fold back. Jennifer Lee (Huddersfield, United Kingdom) on 2 Jun 2015
