vellum sketchbook February 11, 2014
Reviewer: Melissa Chappell from Pomaria, SC United States  
I ordered the vellum sketchbook because I wanted something that would last. I wanted something in which I could record the memories of my late father. I knew that vellum would last an exceedingly long time. But I had trouble finding something that would write comfortably in it. My Monteverde didn't work, my 1889 dip pen didn't work, my glass Rohrer and Klingner didn't work. What to do. Finally, I bought a 1942 Parker 51 as a start to my "Pens of WWII" collection. It was the only thing that I could comfortably write on the vellum paper, and I'm glad, because I want these stories of my father to last so that I can pass them on to my nephew one day. I know that this book will be here for generations to come.

Check These Sketchbooks Out August 22, 2013
Reviewer: Chris from NY  
Really good paper and they open flat! Perfect for on location sketching, journaling, etc. S&B make a number of different sketchbooks with differing characteritics. Try them all.

Top-quality line of sketchbooks April 10, 2013
Reviewer: Stacy Egan from Tucson, AZ  
I bought an Alpha hardbound for my 3-month trip to Australia and it was perfect for illustrated journaling.  I like to sketch in ink then follow up with watercolor, and this book held up to the washes wonderfully.  I have just a slight amount of waviness in my papers.  I always used both sides of the paper.  The book is extremely well-constructed and easily withstood the rigors of travel (much of it in the bush).  To Eric Lay who had trouble with the book laying flat, it helps to break in the book before you use it:  http://hudsonvalleysketches.blogspot.com/2012/01/breaking-in-your-stillman-and-birn.html

Like it February 25, 2013
Reviewer: Eric Lay from Madison, AL United States  
I like this sketchbook. The paper is high quality and it takes ink and a light watercolor wash well. I only wish I could get it to lay more flat when doing a drawing across the spine.
