What are Ivory sketchbooks?

Meet your new artistic companion – the long-standing Daler-Rowney Ivory collection has been popular among artists of all levels for years, and once you get your hands on one, you’ll see why. 

Available in hard or softback, each Ivory sketchbook is coated in an elegant black cover that’s smooth to the touch and a pleasure to hold. Both cover types offer protection from wear and tear, preserving your handiworks and keeping them secure. While the hardback prevents the ultimate damage from page bending, the softback offers greater flexibility for those who like to travel with their sketchbooks. All the sketchbooks in this collection are also bound, which is perfect for presenting work in a professional style.

Inside you’ll find 50 or 78 pages of creamy ivory paper with a weight of 90 gsm. The lightweight and smooth grain acid-free FSC® (FSC-C111372) certified paper is best suited to dry techniques such as pencil, graphite and charcoal, but can also be used with pen and ink. So, whether you’re taking a life drawing class or taking notes, the Ivory sketchbooks offer reliability and luxury. Each page is also micro-perforated to one edge, giving the option to tear away individual pages either for safekeeping or to showcase finished pieces. 

The collection also comes in a range of sizes, including pocket size, A6, A5 and A4, ensuring you have plenty of options to choose from based on your preferences or project. The smaller sizes are portable and compact, perfect for taking out to sketch your surroundings in a studio, at school or when inspiration strikes. 

The Ivory sketchbooks are ideal for everyday use or for students and artists to practice their craft and experiment with new mediums and can also be used as a notebook. As you fill in the pages, you’re left with a visual range of your muses as well as your progress over time.
