The inside covers will been adorned with decorative endpapers. The back cover will have a small pocket for tucking away swatches and other inspiration. This pocket initially comes with 3 strips of Arches paper, so you can test your paint colors on scrap paper before applying them to the pages of the sketchbook.

Please note that the covers of these sketchbooks are upcycled from vintage or antique books that have been well-loved throughout the years. Many of them are nearly or over 100 years old! As such, there may be stains present, worn corners, etc. We think this adds to the charm and character of their vintage nature, but please make sure to inspect the photos carefully before placing an order.
