The following description is from the Sensational Books Website:
It’s almost magic! Pictures in an instant, raised-line drawings anyone can create anywhere! You can feel your drawing as you draw, no need to flip your paper over, no need to draw in reverse. Make tactile images quickly and easily. Draw your own raised line pictures or trace copies from text book or reference materials.
- Light weight at just 7 ounces.
- Flexible enough to not break in your backpack but rigid enough to draw on your lap.
- Inexpensive since it uses standard copy paper and medium ballpoint pen
- Smooth surface holds the paper in place.
- No clamps makes it easy to tuck into a briefcase or binder 11-1/4” x 9”.
