The artist's sketchbook is an crucial item for anyone who wants to be able to commit ideas to paper when they are inspired. It can give you an ideal space to experiment and work out preliminary ideas before you take your project onto a larger domain. Artist sketchbooks can also be a creation in their own right! There are sketchbooks here of all different sizes and for many different styles. With all the possible tastes and requirements in mind, we have brought together a great variety of sketchbooks here, so do stock up and let your imagination run wild!
If you like a strong, solid, traditional form of sketchbook, then we would highly recommend the excellent collection of hardback sketchbooks that we have brought together. They are all reliably well-made, so that they will be your trusty companion without any chance of damage. Choose from a collection which includes hardback sketchbooks of many different sizes.
If you like a sketchbook to be a little bit easier to transport, then we would point you towards our selection of softback sketchbooks. Not quite as heavy, but equally high quality in their construction, these softback options could give you a great day-to-day option for your sketching and drawing needs.
Spiral Bound Sketchbooks
There are also spiral bound sketchbooks with lighter colours sheets. You will find options for all different kinds of drawing and painting; in all of these variations, the spiral mechanism is a really appealing feature, as it allows the pages easily to fold flat while you are working away. They are also easy to tear out pages.
Spiral Bound Black Paper/Card
But sketchbooks are not simply for drawing and sketching, as spiral bound black paper books show. As well as providing for your drawing, these are excellent for photographs and other kinds of presentation. These books, for example, could offer you a way to present your personal studies or indeed mount your project work.
Spiral Bound Watercolour
Those who favour watercolours are not left out of the equation, as there are some supremely well made spiral bound books for watercolour painting too. These have all the benefits of convenience, but also have the correct kind of paper needed for you to be able to put your watercolours to good use.
Leather Bound Sketchbooks
For extra special projects or as fabulous gifts for artists, the leather bound sketchbooks are a real treat. The leather covering give a tactile feel to the sketchbook that will make you want to treasure it. These leather bound sketchbooks offer something above and beyond the standard, and could be the basis for an artist sketchbook as a piece of art in it's own right, or for a creative journal.
