PREMIUM ART JOURNALS

FALLING IN LOVE WITH LEDA SKETCHBOOKS

Looking for a premium art journal? Consider Leda.

You will find the soft, smooth paper enticing.

160 pages of cream colored paper will accent your every mark. Ideal for pencil, pen, ink, charcoal and pastel.

The dense paper isn't too thin or thick. It won't easily rip or smear.

PREVENTS BLEEDING

You will find very little bleeding with the Leda -- if at all. Large tip markers will show through on the other side but customers report that pen and ink work well.

EXTRA FEATURES

Elastic band keeps pages together.

Accordion back pocket for storing photos, lose papers or pencil.

LAYS FLAT

The solid binding permits the book to lay flat. Use the elastic band to hold the pages together.

WHAT ABOUT WATERCOLOR?

While the Leda isn't meant for heavy wet media. Some customers experiment with a light watercolor wash.

The pages will warp a bit, but our designers consider that normal for sketchbooks.

We think that art doesn't have to be proper and precise all the time. It is OK to mess up your sketchbook. And the Leda will take vigorous artmaking.

The dense paper and solid thread binding will hold up to aggressive art making.

FLEXIBLE ALL-WEATHER COVER PROTECTS YOUR ART

UNIQUE COVER MATERIAL

People love the look and feel of the textured flexible cover. It is water resistant and made of PU leather. It bends and lays flat.

Unlike other sketchbooks with hard cardboard backing, the Leda's cover protects your art from the elements. Perfect for sketching in the field.

The Leda weighs less than bulky hard covered books, making it much easier to pack around. The cover feels like a new pair of sneakers. It will hold up to use and abuse over the years. Our solid, thread bound book will last decades.

OUR MISSION

Leda Art Supply is dedicated to helping artists make the world a more beautiful place.

ABOUT US

THE LEDA ART SUPPLY STORY

Leda Art Supply is a private label sketchbook company founded by a college professor and artist who longed for an art journal that approached the Platonic ideal.

FOUNDING HIS OWN SKETCHBOOK COMPANY

Unhappy with what was on the market, Gillespie founded Leda Art Supply to meet the needs of artists like him seeking the perfect travel sketchbook.

The size and paper quality had to be right.

He wanted a lighter weight book that would be easy to pack around.

With a design firmly in mind, he devoted weeks researching stationary suppliers to find the best manufacturers to produce his dream sketchbook.

The Leda Odyssey is that sketchbook.

At 7 x 10 inches it features 160 pages of cream colored, high quality 81 pound paper designed for pencil, ink, pen, pastel and charcoal.

Tests showed that the paper takes a light watercolor wash.

Once the product was on sale artists responded enthusiastically.

Customers across the country fell in love with Leda.

Soon a pocket, medium and extra large size were added to the Leda pantheon. New designs are in the works.

PERFECT FOR TRAVEL

HE TAKES LEDA ON EVERY HIKE

Leda Brand Ambassador Jeff Wohl, a naturalist with The National Outdoor Leadership School, likes the size of the Pocket Leda. It fits in his backpack for month long hiking trips in the Rocky Mountains.

In 2016 Jeff sent Leda Art Supply an email saying that after a search for just the right small sketchbook he discovered the Leda. He said that he was looking for a feild notebook for sketching that would also take a watercolor wash.

He wanted one that would easily fit into his pocket for notetaking or quick sketches. He also wanted solid thread binding that would hold up to the rigors of outdoor activities. The Leda pocket sketchbook met all of his criteria.

Since then Jeff has ordered dozens of Pocket Leda Sketchbooks for his wilderness adventure students and has posted many photos of their backcountry sketching exercises. He has sent us drawings of the mountain landscapes, plants, trees and animals that they encountered on several wilderness adventures.

LIGHT WEIGHT TRAVEL JOURNAL

Others report that the Leda large and medium books are lighter in weight than bulky hard covered sketchbooks -- making them much easier to pack around.

The All-weather cover is water resistant to protect your art from the elements. The solid thread binding will hold up to the jostling of travel.

If you like hiking you will find that our Pocket sketchbook is perfect to record your impressions of the great outdoors. Good for jotting down thoughts, song lyrics or poetry as well.

GOING ON A GRAND WORLD TOUR?

Let Leda be your travel companion.
