LEDA IS JUST AMAZING
Says UK Customer
I just thought that I would drop a quick message to say that back in January when I first purchased one of your sketchbooks, I was initially reluctant to buy it as I had not heard of your brand before so was not too sure what the quality was going to be like.
A couple of months later and I now own three of your sketchbooks, I am never going to buy another brand again - the quality and value for money is just AMAZING.
I use mine as more of an artistic journal than a sketchbook so it gets bashed about an awful lot and has all sorts of mediums purposely thrown on it eg tea, coffee, and fabric and it has not even shown one sign that it is going to fall apart.
Thank you so much for creating quite possibly, the best sketchbook ever, Leda sketchbooks for the win!

New York Magazine Rates Leda "Best Sketchbook for Artists"!
“After purchasing both the three-by-five-inch and five-by-eight-inch versions of this sketchbook, I am completely, utterly, and resolutely sold on this sketchbook. These are easily the finest sketchbooks I have ever had the good fortune to use — far beyond anything Moleskine, Leuchtturm, or Rhodia has to offer. The quality is impeccable, the price unbeatable, the craftsmanship superb. Once my next paycheck comes in, I’m ordering ten more of these. I absolutely cannot lavish Leda with enough praise. After spending almost a decade trying to find the perfect sketchbook, I have, at last, succeeded. Thank you, Leda.”

Enthused Customer Praises Leda
(June 7, 2017)
I have received the Leda Odyssey Sketchbook and am very pleased with it!
I very much like the paper finish, tooth, and off-white color. I have done a couple of sketches in 2-B pencil in it and love the wide range of values possible. The 7x10 size is perfect for my needs also.
I like the durable cover material and the overall construction! And, the back pocket is an added bonus that I didn't expect. Great sketchbook! Thanks!

Keeping Leda Dry in the Wilderness
|Art by Isabella made with a premium Leda sketchbook. #sketching|
"This may be one of the best sketchbooks I've ever used. The pocket in the back is perfect for keeping my stencils and triangle.
Pages are nice and thick and perfect for pen and pencil work.
The medium size book fits perfect in my backpack and the book has held up to daily wear and tear much better than a normal spiral bound sketchbook....
The cream color pages do a good job of show casing your work and color pencils look great on them.
All in all great book and I will buy again."

Sample Seller's Feedback
- This sketchbook is perfect for me. I needed a new sketchbook for work so I can stay creative and sketch new ideas down. I really love the size and the texture of the Leda Sketchbook. I also love the Greek Mythology behind the name. I always appreciate a great Greek Mythology story. I will definitely get another. Jane Brown, /5/17
- "I *love* this sketchbook! The paper is like butter - so smooth but thick enough to handle lots of different media. The buff color is nice to work on. It shows off colors so well. The cover is soft and flexible but seems quite sturdy. I'll definitely purchase this brand again and again." Lana Stuart, 3/1/17
