I am rarely without paper and pen. There are so many astonishments, so many tumbling thoughts to capture. Our Orra Sketchbooks are thin hand-bound books that are ideal companions for small projects and daily excursions. They are named for Orra White Hitchcock, a 19th century botanical, geologic, and zoological artist, an illustrator to whom no detail was too small to be recorded in her art. Made from high quality Strathmore drawing paper, Legion cover stock, and hand-stitched with linen, these versatile sketchbooks can take on a variety of media including pen and ink, watercolor, and graphite.
Available in Black, Grey, or White, with green thread.
Available in 3 sizes: Landscape, Portrait, and Large Portrait. The Landscape and Portrait are designed to fit into our Mini and classic Sendak Artist Rolls. They also fit into our Hunter Satchel – my favorite bag for the days when I want to carry only the necessities!
- Legion paper cover
- 64 pages of line-free Strathmore drawing paper (80 lb. [130 g/m²])
- Linen thread
- 3 sizes available (see below)

I recently learned how to paint water colors and have ordered a number of supplies from your site. I am a huge fan of your work!!! I took a old pair of my dad's work jeans and made a cover😄
