thanks

Janine, I've seen these in a Jerry's store, so I was able to actually feel the paper as opposed to seeing it online, though I didn't buy one. The paper was nice and smooth, and I suspect it would be pretty nice for drawing and ink work. However, it's not very heavy. If you use it for ink, you can expect some show-through, even if it doesn't bleed through. The books look very cool and the prices are good; if I used only dry media I'd definitely get one.
