Leda Spends Christmas in Palm Springs

Somebody has to do it....
Testing the Leda sketchbook in Palm Springs for Christmas 2018.

Leda Art Supply founder Gary Gillespie and wife Teresa exchanged rainy Seattle for two weeks in California Deserts this Christmas.

Their Mission: to see how the art journals performs in 72 degree weather and bright sunshine.

Results?  Leda passes with flying colors of course.
