What are Ebony sketchbooks?

The Daler-Rowney Ebony collection offers students and artists an affordable yet professional set of hardback sketchbooks in a range of sizes, formats and weights.

Ebony sketchbooks are available in several sizes: A6, A5, A4 and A3, as well as square sizes, giving artists the opportunity to create everything from detailed fine art to large scale pieces. Ebony sketchbooks are also available in portrait or landscape, so you have plenty of options based on your preferences.

The hardback cover protects your artwork from damage that can occur during travel or general wear and tear, including rips and folding, keeping your designs preserved and secure. If you’d prefer the option of laying your sketchbook completely flat, you’ll also find a range of spiral bound sketchbooks that allow you to turn individual pages autonomously.

Inside the Ebony sketchbooks, you’ll find smooth, white cartridge paper in weights ranging from 150gm to 180gsm. The fine grain of the Ebony paper is best suited to dry works such as pen, pencil, ink, charcoal and pastel, while the weight allows artists to also add light watercolour washes without puckering. The paper is acid-free, too, meaning it has been made with a neutral PH. This works with your preferred medium to ensure that finished works do not become discoloured or for the paper to yellow over time. It also prevents fading if the artwork includes colouring. The number of pages in each Ebony sketchbook ranges from 48 sheets to 62, giving plenty of paper to work with while keeping the closed sketchbook compact.
