We spent a lot of time and thought deciding on the type of sketchbooks to include in our Handbook of Nature and Creative Journaling packages. Bound books seemed too "stiff" for sketching. Totally lined journals are great for writing, but would discourage artwork. We wanted a place to both write and draw. We wanted books that were spiral-bound so they would lay flat or fold over so it would be easy to use the whole page. After much searching, we found the NoteSketch. Available in either horizontal (bottom half of pages ruled) or vertical ("inside" half of pages ruled) format, the paper is just right for drawing, doodling, sketching and writing. 64 pgs per notebook.
