Love this sketchbook! The paper is nice and smooth, which is great for blending. It is also easy to sketch and erase. The ink does ghost on the other side of the page but it does not seep through to the next page even with a few layers. If you are a heavy layerer, they also included a plastic sheet to go in between the pages.
Four stars because the cover is not necessarily the most aesthetically pleasing (too many words) and the perforated part on my sketchbook arrived bent. Not a huge deal but it does feel like I have to be extra careful when flipping pages to ensure I do not rip it out.
