Have you been looking for the perfect sketchbook?

Alvaro heard you! So he designed his own sketchbooks. Because they are not bulky, are perfect for taking on your travels or bring them to workshops to take notes, you can just open them on your lap, or hold them up and start working.

Busy Time NY comes in (8″ x 11″) a perfect size, you can use it horizontally or vertically. The papers inside are acid free and archival.

High quality and so handsome, that I believe you will treasure it for years to come as you make your personal creative record of your travels and plein air experiences.
