I am usually not too particular about the sketchbooks I use, but for some reason I was having a difficult time choosing what I wanted. I found these beauties at Hobby Lobby. One is 8x10.5 and two are 6x8.5 size. All for.... drum roll 12 dollars. I love a good bargain and these are beautifully made. They have a 30% off sale on all sketchbooks. Check it out.
