Teen Birthday Gift - hand book journal co.
The Visual Journal by hand book journal co.
Affordable art journals are available online. The Global Art Materials art journal, officially under TM, hand book journal co. can be a good choice for an artist gift. A visual journal is the artist's everyday diary.
Looking for this item at the closest Blick art store, 23 miles from my house, I learned it is not stocked in the store. Sometimes it is just easier to order online.
First look at these books and what is there not to like? Luscious colors, cloth hand bound cover and heavy weight buff hued paper. Compare the prices of other artist journals online.
I have to admit to a secret, though. I am only an artist in my head. I have bought a couple of blank books for a little practice sketching, and for doodling and writing. If I knew a young artist, a fashion sketcher, what teenager isn't, or other busy art lover, this would be a gift for them: the hand book journal co. art sketch book.
Here is a complete review and pictures of the journal I own.

A Word About Choices
When choosing a type of journal keep in mind what your artist likes to focus on. Watercolor books have thicker paper than the items marked Drawing.
Take note from the video how nicely the journal opens and allows for double page water coloring.
If your young or beginning artist is going to draw using a blank book similar to mine, photographed here, may be the gift to give.
Why the Professional Journal?
There are plenty of blank books at even better prices but for the lover of pencil stretching, buff paper is an artist's preference. Texture will make the difference when lead is applied to the paper surface.
The bindings are made for flat page opening and a handy pocket allows for tucking in important notes.
As the picture shows each has a closure band and orange ribbon page marker.
Global Arts Materials
The journals are available directly from the company on Amazon.com. The full compliment of sizes and colors are ready for ordering your gifting needs coming in the near future.
I ordered a green journal from Amazon. One project that has been sitting on the wayside can be started when it arrives.
More pictures and the final assessment of this item coming when I fill the pages.

Cloth Not Leather
Leather journals are very prevalent but cotton cloth may be the preference for the budding vegan or those that avoid things made from animal products.
