I’ve been using the Winsor & Newton sketchbooks for some time now. Yesterday I was enjoying myself sketching away in my Winsor & Newton A3 Heavy Weight Casebook Sketchbook, it was quite a nice sunny day which made a change 😉 and I noticed the sketchbook was starting to get a bit warm – but then it has a black cover and as I say it was sunny so there was little I could do. After a while the page I was sketching on fell out, I was a little surprised as you’d imagine and I wondered if I’d been a little rough with the page and tore the perforation. No, it wasn’t just one page that had detached itself from the binding but four. My attempts to push the page back into position were fruitless and any thoughts of carrying on sketching were soon dispelled as more and more pages detached themselves from the book. So now I have a nice black binder with pages falling out everywhere :-/
The problem I have now is, do I replace it with another W&N sketchbook, I like the paper as it’s good quality and I’m used to the grain, but I don’t want another book to suffer the same fate as this one.
