What are the paper details?

These sketchbooks use acid-free, artist-grade, 100% cotton hot press paper. It’s traditional white. Paper thickness is 230gsm (~110lbs) for cold press or 220gsm (~100lbs) for hot press.

How do I choose between Hot and Cold press paper? 

It really depends on your preference:

Cold press paper has a slightly textured surface. It is the paper used most often by watercolour artists because it's good for both not only large areas of wash but also for a good amount of detail. Also, the textured paper allows for shaping things easier!

Hot press paper has a fine-grained, smooth surface, with almost no tooth. It's ideal for large, even washes of one or two colours, drawing with pens and ink wash, and for painting fine details. The smooth surface makes it easier to draw and shade with dry mediums.

Why is acid-free and cotton paper important?

The best paper is acid-free and has a high amount of cotton because it means the paper won’t turn yellow or deteriorate over time. The more cotton a paper has, the better it holds water and keeps the pigment much more vibrant. You can use both sides of the paper to draw.

Do 52 pages mean 26 sheets of paper to draw on?

Yes, it does! You can definitely use both sides of each sheet of paper - that's how good the paper is!
