Americans for the Arts
Americans for the Arts is the nation's leading nonprofit organization for advancing the arts and arts education. To this end, Americans for the Arts works with cultural and arts service organizations as well as arts educators, arts administrators, artists, and the general public to provide leadership, research, visibility, professional development and advocacy to advance support and resources for the arts in communities across the country. Americans for the Arts continually advances awareness of the arts by pursuing programs and policies consistent with three organizational goals, stated simply: More money for the arts; Arts education for every child; and Community development through the arts.
I absolutely love these bags! I use them to protect my prints at art fairs & gallery shows. They protect my prints from environmental dirt and oil from fingertips - and they have the added bonus of making the presentation of my prints look professional and put- together. They're easy to seal, and can be unsealed multiple times without losing their ability to close. I highly recommend these!
I love these! I've been using them by the dozen as journals. I write in black fountain pen, and there's no bleed-through of the ink from one side of the page to the other, and the paper has no trouble with any of the adhesives I've used (tape, Zots, glue) to attach photos and such. Covers are a great weight, and the wire binding seems like it's made for the Ages.
I can't draw a stick figure, so I haven't actually used the books for their intended purpose (i.e. sketching), but the paper has a great feel, and, if it'll stand up to liquid ink on both sides, it should work like a dream with other media.
I actually joined Mr. Art as a VIP because I was buying so many of these. There aren't too many products anywhere of which I'm this fond.
