Hardback Sketchbooks

This range of hardback sketchbooks comes in a variety of sizes from small A6 hardback travel journals to the larger and more substantial sketchbooks which may better suit projects. Choose from chunky square shaped hardbacks, books handmade with natural paper, linen covered sketchbooks and so much more. There is something wonderful about a sketchbook with a hard cover, like it has been made to last, to preserve the artworks, sketches and notes contained with it and feel much more like of an actual book in which you can create your own story.

As part of our collection of hardback sketchbooks we have the Saunders Waterford Watercolour sketchbooks available in cold pressed (NOT), hot pressed (HP) and rough. A sophisticated artist sketchbook for watercolour painting and sketching and the pages have deckle edges (uncut or feathered edges) for an authentic look and quality feel. Using a hardback sketchbook for watercolour works also means that you can keep them protected from bending or creasing when storing or transporting them.

Talking of transport, when out and about on your travels it is handy to have a small 'pocket size' sketchbook to take quick notes and sketches. We have selected some brilliant travel journals to suit your needs with hard covers, elastic straps (to secure those extras bits and bobs that are acquired) and even some with both lined and plain paper inside for neat notes and perfect sketching spaces. Don't be without one when you have those inspired moments or creative urges whether you are on a trip, holiday or even the daily commute.

If you are needing a sketchbook for an art course, perhaps at school, college or university then a hardback sketchbook can give a more professional look to your project work. The sketchbooks come with plain covers or pre patterned designs, but can easily be personalised or creatively altered to fit your project and the hard covers provide a great base to work on.
