Four Nuggets You Didn't Know about Leda Art Supply:

Express Yourself with Leda
1) How the idea for creating The Odyssey Sketchbook was inspired: 

Co-Founder and Creative Director at Leda Art Supply, GJ Gillespie and his wife, Teresa, enjoyed traveling the world making sketches of sights and people they encountered. After creating hundreds of sketchbooks filled with drawings with watercolor wash, they became sketching aficionados. The artist couple discovered that one of the best ways to enhance a vacation is to take up sketching.

“Sketching causes travelers to slow down, look carefully at the scenes and notice features in the landscape that might otherwise be missed,” says 
Gillespie. "When a sketchbook is filled, it becomes a lasting memento of a trip." 

From these travel adventures the Leda was born.

2) How quickly this premium sketchbook was developed:

The Odyssey Sketchbook had an amazingly fast development time of only two months. The Leda product team spent weeks searching the globe for the perfect balance of size and paper quality, and they It just demonstrates what highly motivated, passionate people can accomplish in a short period of time. The flagship product of the fledgling company quickly made it way to page one of Amazon.com.

When GJ Gillespie dreamed of the perfect sketchbook, he quickly realized that many of the sketchbooks on the market bleed ink or easily tear. The problem was overcome by after weeks of research and multiple test variations, when Leda Art Supply developed an environmentally friendly, 81-pound paper that can handle pencil, ink, pen, pastel, charcoal and light water-color wash without bleeding or tearing.

The Leda fan base is growing. Artist J. Mercer shared her opinion in this review:

“I bought the Leda art pad because of all the rave reviews. I am taking an urban sketch class. It requires running here, there and everywhere with my supplies. The sketch book is what I consider the most important art supply. I figured the Leda would be okay-ish, but instead it was far better than my wildest dreams.
"The size is ideal for traveling. It is the perfect size for shoving into any bag. None of my inks bleed thru. I can even quickly wash a sketch with a light watercolor and the paper does fine. It is very comfortable to hold and sketch with too... Hence, the soft cover. Now I appreciate why all of the 5 star ratings. Give it a try!”-- Artist J. Mercer
