I once bought some very beautifully bound books for drawing in from TN
Lawrence in the UK. I don't know if they still supply them, or how much
they cost at this stage, but they were sewn together with a pamphlet stitch
and had a hard cover. The ones I bought, appropriate to my needs, were
about A6 size, but I understand that they were available in a variety of
sizes. The paper of this book is wonderful. I'm not sure exactly what it
is, but it feels like a Rosaspino, or something of that nature. I also
understand that there is a choice of paper with which a book of this nature
I recently came across some here (in South Africa). This one, which I
bought (I'm sure it's an import from the USA) is thicker, but the paper is
not as soft - I think they've used something a little heavier than 90gsm.
They've also bound it with that glue that smells a little like vomit..
Unfortunately I had to buy it because of the currently bizarre Rand/Pound
exchange - but if you're in the States, shop around. Unfortunately all my
books are unlabelled, so I can't give you further details.
Good luck in your search!
