Sketchbooks For Artists: Give Wings To Your Imagination
Sketchbooks can be vaguely described as books or pads with high-quality pages for the purpose of drawing or painting. However, these bundles of plain sheets stacked together are much more than that. While some use sketchbooks just for casual doodling or sketching, some use them as a daily visual diary or even for art therapy. These simple sketchbooks, whether spiralled on not, can be spotted with a majority of artists.

Reasons You Should Buy Sketchbooks
They let you have a personalised collection of your artwork, away from the frenzy of social media.
You can also use these sketchbooks as a professional portfolio of your work, if you have enough expertise over the art form.
They help in developing ideas. One preliminary idea leads to another, and you end up painting/drawing/sketching the unanticipated.
They help in figuring out the correct layout before finalising your artwork on a canvas, thus saving expensive material. If the layout doesn't seem appealing, you can try another design and check the look.
Unlike the risk of being lost, as in digital files, these can be preserved for a longer time.
Digital detox is another advantage.
You don't need batteries to run your sketchbook!
You can carry around your sketchbook anywhere.
It can be used as a chronological record of your improvement over time.
Many artists prefer to use the sketchbooks as travel journals and replicate on paper what they saw outdoors.
You can collect small receipts, letters, etc. in your sketchbook and turn it into a scrapbook.
