Size: 8.75 inches x 5.75 inches with 88 pages of white, lined acid-free 90 lb cold press watercolor paper.

This one-of-a-kind watercolor sketchbook is covered with paper made by hand at Auroville Papers in southern India near Puducherry. The unique impressions left on the handmade paper by Bauhinia leaves make each book one of kind. Auroville Papers promotes the economic and social progress of their employees and encourages their creativity. More than 70 percent of employees are women from surrounding villages.

This handcrafted sketchbook would make a very special one-of-a-kind gift for Mother's Day.

Making books is a labor of love for me and involves many steps. The unique impressions left by the local leaves on the handmade paper make each book one of kind. I treated the paper used for the front and back covers with a special Japanese starch to make it more durable and also give it a pleasing leather-like feel. Then I carefully folded and glued the covers using high quality acid-free book board. I bound this journal by hand using waxed linen thread. My favorite binding, Coptic stitch, creates beautiful exposed braids along the spine and allows the pages to lie flat when the book is open, making it perfect for sketching and painting.

I hope someone will enjoy using this one-of-a-kind sketchbook as much as I enjoyed making it.
