Handmade sketchbooks

Posted by August 8, 2010

This is the sketchbook I made for my mother; I’ve meant to post this for ages.  As with the other sketchbook I made for myself, it has a fabric cover and is filled with Fabriano 5 Liscia (hot-pressed) 210gsm 50% cotton paper.  All the posts from South America (see category to the right) were drawn/painted on this paper.  As you might be able to tell, it takes watercolours amazingly – nothing comes through the other side and after a couple of days the page on which you painted becomes flat again.  If you’d like one made for you, drop me a line.  These ones are 189mm/7.4″ x 122mm/4.8″, but you can have any size or fabric you want..
