  3. Stillman & Birn

Founded in 1958 by Philip Birn, a preeminent Viennese bookbinder who pioneered the concept of the tradtional hardbound sketchbook, Stillman & Birn aims to inspire artists with their myriad sketchbook lines. Offering both hardbound and spiralbound sketchbooks with archival-grade paper, Stillman & Birn sketchbooks are your platform for expression in either dry or wet media. Stillman & Birn puts the choice in your hands so you can pick the ideal sketchbook for your art: white or ivory paper, heavy (150 gsm) or extra heavy (270 gsm) weight paper, and the three options of vellum, rough, or plate paper. Bound in the USA with heavy-duty binder boards that resist warping, each sketchbook stands out as unique and robust - perfect for artists who care about their paper quality. You can always be confident you've got the best, when you've got a Stillman & Birn sketchbook.
