The soft and smooth, matte dark-chocolate brown cover gives the journals a sophisticated look. The smyth-sewn binding allows the journals to open wide and lay flat. There are 112 pages of 80 lb. (118gsm) medium surface gray or tan toned sketch paper in each journal. They contain 30% post-consumer fiber, are acid-free and made in the U.S.A.
