The relatively rudimentary Panorama sketchbooks offer the possibility of positioning many sketches of the same object next to one another or of creating wide sketches that run over many sides contiguously (for example, landscape panoramas). The rough, relatively fibrous paper is suitable for all dry drawing techniques as well as watercolour studies. In addition, these books are often used as photo albums and guest books.
The inner part of the book consists of somewhat narrow paper strips that are doubled over and glued one sheet over the other folded sheet such that the folds are staggered left and right. This creates a zigzag effect which allows the sheets to be pulled like an harmonica. The paper does thereby gain in stability where the two sheets are glued together but it is broken up at every second fold by the border of the overlying sheet.
The books that we have on offer display fine craftsmanship and are not at all comparable to the cheap versions that are so often found on the market. When buying a sketchbook, be sure to check for the number of pages, keeping in mind that often the number of sides is given instead (number of sides = the number of pages multiplied by 2).
For all of our sketchbooks and booklets the size dimensions will be given as width x height.
