I took an online sketchbooking class and this was the recommended sketch book. I really like it a lot, it has nice heavy pages and my drawings look great in it, not saying the drawings are great, but the pages look cool. Ha! They make many different sizes. I got the 10 x 7.4 and the instructor recommended the 5x7 but I love having all the extra space. Good value for the money as it will take me years to fill this thing. It takes watercolor, acrylics, inks very well. You can have a field day in this sketchbook, highly recommend.
