This is my sketchbook
It hasn’t always looked like that, the last time I replaced the pages I also had to do some repair work to the spine (click here to have a look). So, this week it was time to re-bind it again and this time I decided to do away with the spine altogether. I prefer books that are coptic-bound because they lay flat at every page, so I’ve just gone with that and not attempted to tart up the edges this time.
It’s a little tatty, but there’s another reason for this: I’m on the lookout for a new sketchbook. Something vintage (again) that I can personalise. So there seems little point in making too much effort with this one! I’m also rather hoping that I’ll fill this one up a bit faster than the last incarnation (which took over two years…).
What did I do with the pages this time? Well of course I bound them into fresh covers for storage, and this time I used just plain brown paper and then Gocco printed an image on the front (I was in the middle of a Gocco project at the time so it seemed right).
So that’s another job jobbed (as my nan used to say), and the new sketchbook has already been christened.
Pop along to Jenna’s blog over at Timballoo and see what she’s been sketching this week.
