Beta Series Premium Mixed Media Sketchbook - Cold Pressed Surface
These extra heavyweight softcover sketchbooks come as 270 gsm, white, cold-pressed pages that take dry and wet media, watercolor, and ink.
Only Stillman & Birn offers a sketchbook system that gives artists the choice of paper weight, shade, and surface type best suited to their specific techniques. With both internal and surface sizing, our papers have exceptional wet strength that supports the application of multiple washes. Similarly, just as the paper's sizing retards water absorption, pigment stays on the surface of the sheet. The result: remarkably glowing color!
Stillman & Birn bindings are equally rugged. Our hardbound bindings - stiff when new - are designed to be broken in. The spines get eased in and then lay completely flat, accommodating both two-page drawing layouts and flatbed scanning.
