Our new and extremely popular 100% Handmade Cotton Rag Paper is now available in a range of individually produced sketchbooks including an unusual 'Concertina' binding, a Panorama wide format edition and a traditional A6 Landscape Casebound Hardback.
Made by hand in Northern India by local artisans these unique sketchbooks contain individually produced 100% recycled cotton rag paper sheets with a natural deckled edge. Possessing a mid-textured surface and a slightly off-white sturdy 250gsm composition they are highly suitable for both wet and dry media applications, including watercolour. All books feature handmade indigo blue naturally dyed paper covers and an elastic retaining strap to keep your artworks secure. Both Panorama and A6 casebound books come with a red ribbon page marker.
The Concertina A5 and A6 books consist of a continuous surface folded and compiled like an accordion. This flexible and extremely versatile format allows for personal modification of canvas size from using individual sheets to working across multiple folds for panoramas, landscapes or even complete storyboards!
