Sketch Books




  • The most universal and user-friendly page size would be a 9×12″ or a 11×14″: small enough to transport (if need be) but large enough to allow for detailed sketches (if need be).
  • The size of book you choose is completely subjective to your personal artistic style and need which makies it difficult to give general advice about size selection. Fortunately, most companies offer their sketchbooks in a multitude of sizes (ranging from as small as 3×5″ to 18×24″).


  • Most sketchbook pages are a rectangle, but some are square. A square format sketchbook is excellent for creating geometric designs such as zentangle or mandalas.
  • Rectangular books that are bound on the long side are called portrait format, and books bound on the short side are called landscape. There is also a special landscape format which is a long rectangle (usually a 2:1 ratio). When opened horizontally, this format allows the artist capture a panoramic view of the scenery on a single page.
