The Canson XL comes at a generous 7 x 10-inch size, with micro-perforated paper in a spiral-bound notebook. Tear out pieces as you need. A paperweight of 98-pound, 160 gsm—grams per square meter—is friendly for most media: pencil, ink and wash, markers, acrylic, and crayons. It will hold up under light watercolor, and with 60 pages and a low cost, it’s perfect for spontaneous experiments. It’s a little too big to be a daily carrier, but perfect for an evening of figure drawing or collage at home.
