Multi-media artists, your search for a pre-bound art journal has come to an end. This paper is revolutionary.
I've tried dozens of papers for mixed media over the years. I would compare it to the highest grade hot press watercolor paper you can buy. I've already thrown gouache, watercolor, wax pastels, and heavy-body acrylics at it. I spilled a glass of wine on it! The paper refuses to buckle. You can scrub and lift color all day long with no lasting damage.
S&Bs other extra heavy weight journals behave as well, so what makes the Zeta truly revolutionary is that it also loves fountain pens. Not slick smooth like Clairefontaine but for super heavy art paper it's incredible. Draw or annotate to your heart's content.
The stitching is superb, and the journal will well and truly lie flat every time with just a little breaking in.
If you don't know which journal to get and you want to leave the future open to using any media you want, the Zeta is the most versatile of them all!
