Strathmore Visual Journals were developed in response to artist insight and feedback. These unique journals offer high-performing, acid-free papers and heavy-duty features for the intense mixed-media art of visual journaling. Visual Journals feature a heavy-duty wire binding that is stronger than traditional wire bindings, and allows the journal to lie flat and open up 360 degrees. Use these journals with almost any media – paints, crayons, colored pencils, pastels, collage, markers, ink and more! This 100% cotton, medium-weight paper is great for wet and dry media including watercolor, acrylic, pen and ink, pencil, crayon, charcoal, marker and collage. It is acid free and proudly made in the USA.
