The whole sketchbook is made solely by me. For a start there is only a pile of paper, cardboard and some old jeans in front of me. From there on it is only manual work. Cutting, sewing, trimming, gluing and printing. With its durable covers and flexible spine and binding method, it is adapted for someone who likes to sketch a lot and have their sketchbook with them at all times.
This specific one has a hand printed cover, designed by me and pressed on with a printing press.
Size: 170 x 128 (close to A6 size) Inner paper: 100 gsm off white sugar paper Covers: high density cardboard Spine: denim fabric (recycled)
Paper is thick enough even for water colour painting, ideal for drawing with ink pens or soft pencils. Dark ink pens will not seep through it so every single page can be used on both sides.
There are other sizes available in my shop. I have more sizes available in stock, message me if there is something you don't find here.
I created the very first one 4 years ago, since then I have used 5 of these myself which allowed me to test and improve them. There is always one in my backpack for moments when I have ideas that I want to write down or sketch.
Because this is a hand made product, every single one is slightly different, some will be +/- 3mm larger or smaller, you will see that a human hand has made them however none of these things affect the quality of the product. Covers are strong but not treated with any plastic or preservative layers which is why they age beautifully, making it look vintage by the time the sketchbook is full.
Each order is for one sketchbook with a drawing printed on the cover and blank pages.
