Paper to make your work look awesome + last a long time.
Studio Sketchbook is made with Hanji, a traditional Korean paper made primarily from the inner bark of the mulberry tree and the sunset hibiscus. Its cross directional fibers and neutral PH give it lasting tensile strength and durability. This paper is soft, strong, environmentally friendly and non-toxic.
A delightfully smooth + soft writing surface.
Hanji provides a smooth, soft writing surface which works with a variety of media. Our favorite is ink. But it is amazing with pencil, crayon or paint. Fittingly, Hanji doesn’t take too well to industrial printing processes, but loves anything done by hand.
Binding that is both durable + ergonomic
Studio Sketchbook is bound in Korea by a small, husband + wife team bindery. It is stitched together with perfect, layflat binding and an open spine. Regardless of the page you are on, this book lays naturally flat. And the open-bound exposed, glued spine makes visible its quality traditional construction.
Similar to our other products, there is no visible branding on Studio Sketchbook. The front cover features a hand screen-printed bright orange dot to designate orientation.
A blank slate
There is no printing, lines, dots, grids, page numbers, or markings to tell you where to write your info in case you lose your sketchbook. Studio Sketchbook is designed to support YOU and YOUR creative practice. All the pages are blank for you to do what you want.
The paper in this tiny sketchbook is fantastic. Fibrous strands of white remind me of drawing on Santa’s beard. The classic lay-flat binding gives me a 2-page spread; tasty.
Your site and packaging and branding is great. I love the size of the notebook but I'm not a huge fan of the quality of paper. It's so so, not really the type of paper I like. I wish I could've felt it in a store before I bought some. Other than the type of paper it's all good.
Hey Harsh, Sorry to hear you didn't like the paper. You're welcome to send it back to us for a refund!
The paper is smooth, the size is perfect for a back pocket, the color is vibrant, and the exposed binding is strong.
I have loved my Studio Sketchbooks! Great quality and love using them!
I'm a sucker for the Hobonichi Techo and have needed a solid companion to it for a while for longer notes/journal entries/a place to doodle. This has been perfect. I love - how it folds flat - the way the paper feels (really, really special) - the no-bs binding - how the paper is thick but pens don't skip when I'm writing - the pure, clean design Thank you for making the best little companion :-)
