Journals are included in the White Sale is on at Wet Paint. Read this post for links to my past reviews of various commercially made journals.
Wet Paint, my favorite art supply store in the whole, wide world, is having its annual WHITE SALE. This means that every single pad of paper and every single journal is on sale for 20% off and sheet paper is on sale for 10 percent off.
Golden Acrylic and Mediums (except Golden High Load) are also on sale at 40% off manufacturer's suggested retail price (until February 12). And there are other deals on some Gamblin products, and some canvas stuff…well you can mosey on over to their website and read about it.
The sale goes through the end of February (unless otherwise stated). I mention it here because this is a great time of year to stock up on commercially bound journals
I've written about the commercially bound journals Wet Paint carries here:
Exacompta 9920 Sketchbook (Drawing paper in a soft-covered book with sewn signatures and a fabric covered spine.)
They also have Robert Batman, Great Canadian and other such wirebound sketchbooks with great paper. (I don't have a review of the GC, just sketches from it; it's the sketchbook I use at life drawing. The paper is heavy enough that you can do light washes on it.)
There are also sketchbooks and board for the Manga artist.
And they carry a great selection of the Clairefontaine notebooks—lined, blank, and lab-ruled—with stiff and colorful cardstock covers and fabric covered spines (with sewn signatures of course!).
Oh, yeah, they have Moleskines too, in all their manifestations—because I know so many of you love these little (or not so little) journals. (They even have a really large watercolor Moleskine that must be 12 x 9 or something, I saw it on a bottom shelf, but didn't reach for it. I do have some restraint.)
