Covers & Designs

Covers & Designs


Our sketchbook cover designs have been chosen to inspire creativity while still offering a blank canvas for your self-expression.

No matter which design you choose, a theme that remains constant is a celebration of imaginations that make the impossible possible.

Interior Formats


These hardcover sketchbooks offer 112 pages of 200 gsm Fedrigoni art paper in a clean, white colour. The pages are perforated so you can easily remove and save your favourite artworks.

Sizes & Formats


Our first collection of sketchbooks is available in our largest format, the grande size. This offers a beautiful blank canvas with unlimited potential.

Binding


Smyth Sewn Binding

We take the durability of our products seriously and bind all our books using the sturdy yet incredibly flexible Smyth sewn technique. In the classic art of bookmaking, the sewing together of signatures (paper folded into groups of eight, sixteen or thirty-two pages) is seen as the heart of a well-made book, and we have followed this tradition in creating Paperblanks books.

Features


  • Elastic Closure

    Elastic Closure

    An elastic band closure that expands to protect your artwork even as you fill your sketchbook over time.

  • Ribbon Markers

    Ribbon Markers

    Like our grande size hardcover journals, all Paperblanks sketchbooks feature two satin ribbon markers.

  • Endpapers

    Endpapers

    We are proud to give credit to the talented individuals and artistic movements that have inspired our designs. The back endpaper of every book contains credit and copyright information, as well as a fascinating historical background for the original artwork.

Paper


Paper Quality

Inside every Paperblanks sketchbook is Fedrigoni mixed media art paper. The paper is acid- and chlorine-free, FSC-certified and perfect for use with a variety of mediums, including acrylic, watercolour, pens and pencils.

Paper Sourcing

Considering the environmental impacts of doing business is important to us. That’s why, in addition to using FSC-certified and chlorine-free art paper, our sketchbooks are made with binder boards crafted from 100% recycled materials.
