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. Available in a variety of paper styles - Bristol (Smooth or Vellum surface), Drawing, Mixed-Media and Cold Press Watercolor (90 lb. or 140 lb.). Use these journals with almost any media – paints, crayons, colored pencils, pastels, collage, markers, ink and more!
