A deluxe blank sketchbook that includes action-packed art from the science-fiction world of Bungie’s hit online game, Destiny Rise of Iron where players can easily find amazing experiences, challenges and victories amid a post-apocalyptic world set 700 years into the future and feel like, although playing alone, they’re part of something bigger.
Customizable weapons/vehicles, dynamic/enjoyable gameplay and expanded experiences like the Rise of Iron expansion pack this Insight Editions’ deluxe sketchbook uses as the source theme/material. Users can fill this book with their own special creations. Sketches, journal entries, ideas, and even gameplay hints/discoveries. The sketchbook dimensions are 7 x 0.8 x 10 inches.
This well constructed, hard cover sketchbook has a rubbery outside finish with a ribbon placeholder and 6.5 x 9.75–inch back pocket where users can slip in writing and sketching materials and other extras. The sketchbook has an elastic “bookmark” closure attached to the back.
The books produced are unique works that combine the highest quality print production values with the time-honored traditions of publishing and rich subject matter. Elegant and informative, books from Insight showcase the best of art and photography in exquisite presentations of the bookmaker’s craft.
This great looking deluxe sketchbook contains plenty of high quality, archival pages (192 total) that are also acid free. Brush pens work holds up very well on the thick pages. The pages are durable, but not enough for paint or watercolors so avoid using them to avoid ruining this impressive sketchbook. Blotchy fountain pens can also be an issue so test them out on scrap paper before applying to the sketchbook.
The impressive design features Rise of Iron visuals in the front and back of the pages. These well designed visuals should inspire most to equal or surpass the works they see.
The sketchbook’s spine is blank, which should inspire users to add their own title for artistic and practical purposes. Besides gamers, other target audiences would include sketch artists looking to showcase their portfolio work in a unique way. This sketchbook can hold several photographs and other papers.
