However... This sketchbook is only good for sketching. The paper is fairly light-weight, so the drawings on the previous and following pages will show through the paper. You'll often get graphite rub from the pressure of the pen or pencil which causes the graphite on the previous pages to "copy" onto it's opposite page. In addition, pages are fairly difficult to remove without mangling the entire book.
In short: I highly recommend this sketchbook for traveling, but urge you not to draw back-to-back on the pages, nor to use this book for anything more than sketching.
Tip for scanning sketches: If you did not draw on both sides of the page, you can slip an extra sheet or two of white paper to block out the "shadow" of drawings on following pages.
From that experience I can say that the build quality of these notebooks is very solid yet also very clean. I had no trouble peeling the notebook from its cover, yet at no point did the binding between the notebook feel weak or fragile.
Likewise, swapping the bound notebook into its new cover with some project glue, the binding of the paper still seems strong after several months.
So if you're looking for a fairly sturdy sketchbook, this one seems solid all the way through.
Of course good for pencil. Paper has smooth surface--that is, you don't feel the texture, which is an important factor for pencil art. Some like texture, some not.
Nice looking book. Faux leather doesn't look tacky. Sewn binding. Can be pursuaded to lie flat when opened. Pleasant to work with!
The cover is pretty plain and simple, which is good if that's your preference. The ribbon marker seems sturdy and the elastic doesn't blemish the cover.
I payed between $12 and $13 for the mocha brown sketchbook. I can't say that I would spend that much for another journal, but like I said it was a gift and it fit this person's preferences pretty well. I would say that it was worth the price in quality and how long you could hold onto it.
