The Zeta series has “extra heavy weight paper” at 180lb/270gsm. The paper has a really good thickness almost card like and very similar to Bristol board. Usually with sketchbooks you learn to live with the paper buckling with even the slightest watercolour wash. With these books, I threw lots of washes onto a single page and its really resilient. So, you can do full watercolours in this book without fear. There is a very slight affect on the paper but its hardly noticeable at all.
