Winsor & Newton sketchbooks
Jessica asked about the Winsor & Newton sketchbook I was raving about on EDM. I bought the little one a while back, thought it would be absolutely perfect if they would make something like it in square format and a few weeks later my dream came true! I couldn't find a picture on the Winsor & Newton site (someone ought to get their act together with that site - and the same goes for Daler Rowney, Faber Castell and Berol. I love their stuff but do they actually want anyone to buy it?) and only a small photo of the smallest size. (It comes in a larger 6x8 ins as well as this 8x8 ins squared version).
I've photographed it against my A3 pad to show the size more clearly. I'm not sure exactly how heavy the paper is but it's not thin, probably 120gsm or thereabouts. The pages fold out flat without the ridge you get with the Moleskines.
It has a little ribbon as you can see but also a pocket inside the back cover that a lot of books seem to have as standard now.
