This is the perfect Artist's sketchbook. It will accept watercolour or pastel.
The pages are a high quality Canson Mi - Teintes laid out landscape style. They are hand cut from 3 sheets of paper. One sheet is a creamy white, while the other two are chalk white. Paper is lightly textured as opposed to smooth writing paper. Inside covers are matching gold textured paper.
My books are made from scratch. All pages are cut by hand, folded and sewn and glued by me.
Would make a lovely Guest Book.

Coptic binding is a no glue sewing method. It was developed by the ancient Coptic Christians in Egypt in the 2nd century and used until the 11th century. Modern bookbinders picked up the stitch again in the 20th century.
It's used because of the unique chain stitching on the open spine. It's a favourite for sketching and journaling because it lays completely flat when opened.
