What is your favourite type of Journal to use when Travelling?
Do you have a favourite type of journal to use when you are Travelling?

I love the Moleskine Sketchbooks, but when I am travelling I prefer the flexibility of a small spiral bound book. I like to look for one that has a fairly smooth watercolour paper - that seems to give me the flexibility for all the different types of media I may want to use.

I like to use the Oxfam Fairtrade books. The handmade paper is just lovely and takes paint and ink very well. Some of them have flower inclusions too, which can add detail.

I like to throw my book in a big bag of supplies and general things, so it's great that they have a thread around the centre to tie them closed too!

Interesting, I haven't come across those before, will have to check them out next time I'm passing an Oxfam shop. Are these the journals you used for your Italy and Morocco trips?

They are. Different sizes and covers, but the same paper.

I love Moleskine Sketchbooks and their watercolor books. Unfortunately I do not really like spiral books because I am a leftie and also the fact that sometimes I want to draw across 2 pages Smile

I read quite a lot of artists are using Stillman & Birn now and I've just requested to try their paper as they have a few range of sketchbooks. If they are as good as the other artists say they are, I am sure to be hooked!

I know what you mean about the spiral bindings. I've got a big trip coming up and have ordered a book from here - www.etsy.com/shop/GILDBookbinders

I'm hoping the paper is going to be really good quality for taking paints and everything else I want to throw at it! Hopefully it'll arrive this week and I can check the paper out properly.

I use both the moleskin and the spiral bound books. Since I use colored pencils and am right handed, either one is good for me.

I have recently purchased the 'strathmore visual journal watercolor 90lb'.
So far it is working out greatly. It is cold pressed and 5.5 x 8 inches. So, size is perfect to stash
In even a small bag. I hope this helps?

Btw, I have just joined the group.
Nice to meet you. smile
