Zen Pig Sketchbook | Recycled Brown Cartridge, 35 Leaves
This variant is currently sold out.
At Pink Pig we love pockets. Who wouldn’t? They like to hang out all the time, they’re always smiling, they even carry stuff around for us. Some other sketchbook manufacturers don’t appreciate them like us and only make big books.The kind that would tear a back pocket to ribbons; even when folded in half (we tried, don’t ask how). To celebrate the unsung hero at our hip we created 4x4s, the perfect pocket companion*.Binding
Our 4x4s are spiral bound with durable wire binding. Wiro-bound sketchbooks last longer than glued ones which deteriorate over time, plus they don’t fall apart when you pull a page out like traditional bound books. Combined with our tough covers, the spiral binding lets you stand the book up, lie it completely flat or fold it over to present your doodles.Covers
We wanted our sketchbooks to be like the lovely artists that use them, unique and colourful! That’s why both covers are hand-wrapped in a bright tissue paper with flecks of banana leaf or silk strands in an arrangement exclusive to you! Under the tissue paper is a solid grey board made of 100% recycled materials. The board is sturdy enough to protect your work from bumps and bangs, plus it acts as a good surface to lean on.Paper
Working with our trusted supplier (James Cropper PLC) we have created a 150gsm brown cartridge paper made with 30% PCW (that’s Post Consumer Waste to you and I), making use of previously non-recyclable coffee cups straight from the world's first coffee cup recycling plant! As always we’ve made sure the paper is archival quality & acid free to protect all your illustrations. This pig comes jammed with 35 leaves of cartridge paper, that’s 70 sides altogether for all your bits and bats.
*ok they don’t go in e-v-e-r-y pocket but research has shown: the vast majority.
