Black books are a must-have for every artist. Ideas often take shape here. Use the Amsterdam black books to create your first drafts – with a pencil, fine liner pen or an Amsterdam marker. The books are available in 3 different sizes: A5, A4 and A3. Or choose Amsterdam’s special art pad with waterproof synthetic paper. It’s strong, smooth and tear-resistant. It’s also ideal for pouring or other techniques using Amsterdam acrylic products, especially if your paper needs to stay flat.
