Looking at the variety of options regarding my portfolio, I'd prefer to have a soft leather bound one, much like the design that was shown to us by Fred.
Pampa Book A3 Portrait; £59.95.
The hard leather portfolios however offer much more stability and unlike the design in soft leather can be held both landscape and portrait, it does however look much more like the portfolios that we have in college which does put me off slightly.
PRAT Siva "Classic" Press Book 30cm x 42cm; £65.50.
Then of course could blow the budget with Brodies, £260.00+.
