Stillman & Birn Mixed Media Sketchbooks
Premium sketchbooks. Mixed media proven.

In order 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, just as the paper's sizing slows down water absorption, pigment stays on the surface of the sheet. The result: remarkably glowing color!

Bound in the United States, our sketchbook system offers artists a choice of three paper surfaces: medium grain, cold press, smooth.

10% off all orders of Stillman & Birn and our other brands on through July 1, 2020!
