Episode #15: Exacompta Sketchbook

The Exacompta Sketchbook is a neat little book. It’s 5.5″ x 8″, 100 sheets of 100g textured off-white paper, the same as G. Lalo Vergé de France. It has a thin black cover, cloth binding and silver edges on the paper, which make it look pretty snazzy!! To keep your page, it has a ribbon marker.

The paper performs well, holding up to pencils, ballpoints, rollerballs, and fountain pens. No feathering of any kind. It’s not a bad price at only $16 retail, considering that a Vergé de France tablet of the same size will cost the same price, but only has half the paper. The sketchbook even has exchangeable covers that you can buy to better protect it. If you like to sketch, the Exacompta Sketchbook is worth a look!

Exacompta Sketchbooks are available for $15.50 at The Goulet Pen Company, and is of course available from other retailers.
