We call this the Landing Zone Sketchbook because taming wild ideas begins when they land in your sketchbook, notebook, or journal.
Over the years, Don has experimented with countless different blank books and has always been disappointed. Until now. That's because we found a bookbinder named Ann who can make reasonably priced books with all the features Don craves (see detailed list below).
8.25" (21 cm) X 5.5" (14 cm). 100 pages of heavy, white paper. Hard cover, fabric covered. Debossed with landing-zone icon. Expandable pocket. Bookmark ribbon. Elastic closure. Made in China. Comes in pack of 2 sketchbooks.
Large enough to capture big ideas but small enough to carry everywhere,
Inviting feel. Not slick or rubbery. Dark to hide schmutz. Landing-zone icon differentiates front and reminds you what a sketchbook is for—giving ideas a safe place to land.
Pages stay open without a struggle. One hundred pages means you have enough space to sustain a productive streak.
Heavy, white (not yellow), acid-free paper with smooth surface that welcomes pencil, pen, and brush pen without show through. No tyrannical lines or grids to inhibit sketching.
A place to stash clippings, emergency cash, business cards, postage stamps, templates, and other necessities.
Elastic closure loop, ribbon to mark your place, radius corners to soften knocks and prevent damage.
I love these notebooks! They're easy to store in a purse or bag but the page size still allows for jotting down lots of information. I'm not a clever enough artist to sketch the various calamities that befall me during my days but I can easily write about them in these neat books!
I purchased these for my niece, a freshman in college, they are perfect to throw in her backpack and pull out when inspiration strikes. I love the soft but resilient leather covers and the paper quality is is very nice. A perfect Christmas gift. Always fun doing business with you
I bought these for my Mom and sister. They are the artists in my family. I think they will love them. They are a perfect size to fit in your purse to carry with you for that impromptu sketch.
