This is my new sketchbook!




I made this one for me. It has my favorite paper - Fabriano Artistico hot press 90lb watercolor paper - and rounded corners. I got the book plaque with the Picasso quote from fellow etsy seller Mudcakes. To see my first entry in this sketchbook look at my other blog Playful Art Journal.

Your books are absolutely gorgeous Kristin, and I can see why you kept this one for yourself. It's stunning.

Gorgeous book.
Not sure what Arches Printmaking Paper is?
Do you make any sketchbooks with Arches heavyweight watercolour rag?

I found a link on etsy where the binder has used 140lb cp paper, so in answer to your question, I guess heavier paper can be folded sucessfully.
