Stillman & Birn Alpha sketchbooks offer both internal and surface sizing, their papers have exceptional wet strength that supports the application of multiple washes. Similarly, just as the paper's sizing retards water absorption, pigment stays on the surface of the sheet. The result: remarkably glowing color!
Stillman & Birn bindings are equally rugged. Their hardbound bindings - stiff when new - are designed to be broken in. The spines get eased in and then lay completely flat, accommodating both two-page drawing layouts and flatbed scanning.
Bound in the United States.
