Clara from Straits Art Co. is going to the US to meet the supplier for Stillman and Birn sketchbooks. Because there are so many varieties, she is doing a pre-order so she knows which ones to bring back exactly and how many. The top two options are The Gamma and Alpha series. I did the a review for the Gamma series here: http://www.parkablogs.com/content/review-stillman-birn-gamma-series-sketchbook These are very good sketchbooks with a generous amount of very good paper. You may google it to look for more reviews online. Here is one illustrator that uses it: http://ewaludwi.wordpress.com/ These sketchbooks are not available in Singapore. And I feel they are better than Moleskine as they can hold watercolor and ink better.

Here are the options and her selling price:

Gamma 5.5" x8.5" -  S$19.50
Delta 5.5" x8.5" -  S$23.00
Beta 5.5" x8.5" -  S$ 21.00
Gamma A4 size - S$25
Alpha A4 size - S$25
Delta A4 - S$29.50
Beta A4  S$29.50

(All sketchbooks will be the hardbound version.)

Please put your NAME, SKETCHBOOK TYPE (in this order) in the comments section below this post. All names on the last comment post after 18 April will be considered confirmed.

The amazon price (not including shipping) is here: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Darts-crafts&field-keywords=stillman+and+birn

Timing-wise, she will be leaving 18th April. So it is roughly a month or so wait.
