15+ Sketchbook Spreads That Will Inspire You to Get Drawing

Looking for the best sketchbook? Here are five books to try.

Succulent Wood Cover

Best Sketchbook

Cardtorial | $29.00

This is a sketchbook you’ll definitely want to show off. Comprising 160 unlined pages, the cover is made of wood with a bold image of a succulent laser etched into it. This book is ideal for drawers and designers who prefer to work in pen or pencil.


Large Sketchbook

Created by artists for artists, this sketchbook by Watson Guptill is a classic. It features a pebbled hardcover and premium paper. Like the Cardtorial journal, it is best used with pencil, pen, and ink. (But feel free to use charcoal, too.)


Moleskine Art Plus Sketchbook

Sketchbook Drawing

Moleskine | $16.05

Moleskine remains one of the most popular sketchbooks in the world. This is, in part, thanks to the versatility of its pages. The thick sheets are able to withstand both drawing and painting materials. They’ve also got an interior pocket that adds storage for keeping loose papers organized and safe.


Universal Paper Sketch Pad

Best Sketchbook

Canson | $9.71+

The Universal Sketch Pad by Canson is one of the highest rated sketchbooks on Amazon. It comes available in a variety of sizes, but each variation is equipped with heavyweight paper that’s smudge resistant. “To me, a sketchbook must have a spiral bind so that you can draw without having to bother with other pages and a sturdy backing so that you can draw even if you are not at a desk,” one reviewer writes. “This sketchbook meets both those requirements.”


The Perfect Premium Medium Sketchbook

Don’t let this soft-cover sketchbook fool you; it’s rugged enough for indoor and outdoor use. There are 160 smooth, cream-colored pages that are bound with an all-weather cover. Use your favorite pens, pencils, charcoal, and pastels for this book which ranges in sizes, between five and a half inches to 10 inches tall.
