Croquis Sketchbook/ Pocket-Size (MARUMAN)
A small sketchbook with a semi-hard cover encasing premium-quality pages by Maruman. Also available in square format.
The original sketchbook by Maruman was developed in 1970 as a sketchbook not just for fine artists but also for designers and illustrators. The Kraft paper cover is strong enough to protect the pages but also light and flexible enough to travel with ease. The quality paper inside is made in Japan, and comes in white, ivory or cream with different weights. All styles of sketchbook come with a surface that lends texture to graphite or ink work.
The geometric logo on the cover with blue, orange, or pink circles indicates the different page types inside. The two color dots also mark the spine of the sketchbook, which is bound with a special S-coil binding that doesn’t bend or snag onto things while traveling.
The croquis sketchbook works well for sketching with pencils, writing or drawing with a fountain pen, or recording travels and events using a mixture of media such as colored pencils and markers.
