Shortly after Kokuyo celebrated 60th anniversary of Sketch Book in 2019, Kokuyo released a series of new updates on their classic Sketch Book. This version of Sketch Book is called Trip Book, with a traveling bear logo. Unlike Sketch Book, Trip Book comes with dot grid, and it's designed to inspire travel logging.
In 1959, the Sketch Book was originally made for engineers to use in their field surveys. It has a hardcover, making it suitable for note taking during work outdoors as the hardcover provides a surface to write upon. The paper is smooth and fountain pen friendly, and features a 3mm grid for easy drawing of diagrams or list making. Many comparisons have been drawn between Kokuyo’s Sketch Book and the popular Field Notes brand of notebooks, but we really like the Sketch Book’s hardcover, brightly colored covers, gold lettering and overall classic look.
