Paper Colour: White or Cream
The two paper types are similar, but not identical. The cream paper is extremely smooth, whereas the white paper has a small amount of tooth, but is still quite smooth. Both papers work best with mediums that aren't too wet, like markers and coloured pencil, but can also be used with various types of paint. If the paper gets too wet, it will buckle. Coloured pencil works slightly better on the white paper thanks to the tooth, and alcohol-based markers work slightly better on the cream paper since it's easier to get flat, solid colour. See product photos for examples.
Please note the back cover of the books may have a slight imprint of the cover design. This is from the books pressing into each other when they were sent from the factory. Also, due to the nature of thick thread embroidery, there may be slight imperfections in the embroidery design.
