As my tasks are consuming me, my time photographing anything is slow, and not steady.
It does take wet; it does take markers; it does not bleed through. And I will be adding this sketchbook to my favourite pile--too many sketchbooks are already on the also ran pile and destined to be given away or tossed into the burn barrel.
Now I have about five favourites: The Stillman & Birns; the Exaclair sketchbook; the Super Deluxe Aquabee with the brown cover; and the Pentalic Nature Sketch. The Aquabee and Nature Sketch only come in spiral bound.
As I generally do not sketch across both sides of any journal whether it is spiral or hardbound appears not to interfere with my working habits. If I had it my way, not easy to come by, I'd have a Moleskine style sketchbook with perfect paper. Alas, alack, such a beast does not exist.
