Collection: STILLMAN & BIRN

To meet the wide range of artists’ needs, Stillman & Birn’s sketchbook system gives them the choice of paper weight, shade, and surface type best suited to their specific techniques. With both internal and surface sizing, our papers have exceptional wet strength that supports the application of multiple washes. Similarly, pigment stays on the sheet’s surface just as the paper’s sizing slows down water absorption. The result: remarkably glowing colour!

Our hardbound bindings - stiff when new - are designed to be broken in. The spines get eased in and then lay completely flat, accommodating both two-page drawing layouts and flatbed scanning. The wirebound bindings allow for your book to lay and remain flat and for easy removal of pages to archive or share. The softbound covers are sewn bound, allowing flexibility while remaining durable. Rounded corners prevent frayed edges and give each book an elegant finish.
