Details: This sketchpad has heavy weight paper ideal for drawing experimentations. It is ideal for practicing different pencil techniques. It is part of the 400 series. It has a convenient size, and great for taking it on the go. Strathmore has been making fancy paper since the last 150 years. The photo shows you how not to use the paper. It shows the importance of reading about the product before buying it. I had originally got it to continue my Chiblia manga. After doing the first page, I realized the pen had soaked through the other side of the page. Counting my losses I continue with the manga. It ended up working well with the pens. All in all, the paper should be used as it was meant to.
