Want a sketchbook that has a variety of art     papers rather than a sketchbook for each type of paper you need. Well now you can with this sketchbook that you can design and build yourself.
Choose what papers go into it and what covers it has, from printed and plain fabric cover, handmade paper cover or just a plain grey board cover that you can cover and decorate yourself. (Covers listed are priced per cover. You can then mix and match your front and back covers or have both the same).

Choose the types of papers and the number of pages you want in your sketchbook from a wide variety of choices and then they are all put together with three binding rings which also give you the option of adding and removing papers as you need to.


Build the sketchbook with the papers that you would like from this list of options;
