The Ancona Artist's Sketchbook

Premium grade artist's sketchbook in B5 portrait format.   The paper block is comprised of 58-page, 220 gsm, 60% cotton-content, hand-deckled Rosapina Ivory paper from the legendary Italian paper mill FABRIANO.  The paper is highly versatile and suitable for sketching and drawing with pencil, pastel, coloured pencil, ink, marker, painting with gouache, acrylic and water colours, printmaking ( etching, lithography and silk-screening ) and collage-making.  Each signature of the paper stock is meticulously hand-stitched and bound to perfect alignment. The cover is made with heavy duty board finished with 100% Japanese cotton duck fabric in dark olive colour.  The robust and soil resistant fabric is ideal for outdoor usage and storage.

Paper is the heart of the Sketchbook

The Ancona Artist's Sketchbook uses the Fabriano Rosapina Ivory 220gsm Print-Making and Mixed-Media stock to support a wide spectrum of artists' and designers' media, including light washes of watercolour. It has a lightly textured surface with enhanced absorpbancy suitable for most dry and wet media. The tinted colour paper, which is comfortable on the eyes, makes it ideal for outdoor sketching, drawing and painting. Hand-deckled edges add to the hand-made aesthetics of the sketchbook.

Natural Vegetable Tanned Leathers Are Beautiful Naturally.

Our Story

Arkademie began as a humble craft interest and soon developed into a dedicated facility focusing on the designing and handcrafting of journals, sketchbooks and stationery for designers, architects, artists, writers and the creative professionals. While most journals and sketchbooks depreciate in quality and structure after several years of use, we aim to produce journals and sketchbooks that last for a lifetime. We believe that the design and written contents created by our users should be preserved for and beyond their entire creative periods. The value of their journals and sketchbooks should only increase with time.

Lifetime Guarantee

All our vegetable tanned leather goods are made from buffalo and cowhides, known for their robustness and durability, from reputable tanneries from the Asian and European regions, and are guaranteed for a lifetime of use. With regular oiling and maintenance, our leather items will be able to last many decades. Conditioning and burnishing service is also provided free for our leather goods, to ensure a lifetime of dedicated performance and protection for the creative contents they hold.
