Using the new Stillman and Birn Zeta sketchbook and it is now available in the UK!

Mixed media, edge of the woods in A4 S&B Zeta sketchbook

The paper in the new Zeta sketchbook is very very smooth and very heavy.  I was able to splash wet washes about, draw with a bamboo pen and pigment, and layer colours without them going muddy or dead.   The pen glided over the surface freely.  This is a hardback as I really like them, but you can also get a ring bound version for those who prefer them.  A lovely paper to work on :>)

S&B books are now available from Amazon UK I notice, for anyone wanting to try them out..  I'm really enjoying using them as the paper is such a lovely quality and the sizing means that colours retain their glow.   The pages in the hardbacks don't curl and lie flat for working across  a double page spread. 

The Beta is on my packing list for my next trip to the coast.

So has anyone tried them yet in the UK?
