This blank book, perfect as a journal or a sketchbook, features a gray cover sceenprinted with a peach and lavender pattern. This book's Secret Belgian binding style allows the inside pages to lay flat for easy writing and drawing. In fact, the front cover can even fold back on itself, allowing the book to be held in one hand like a clipboard — ideal if sketching in an art gallery or outdoors.

This book cover was inspired by an exhibition of ancient ceramics at The Frist Center in Nashville. I spent a day sketching figures and shapes in the gallery, and once I got back in my studio, I used India Ink to illustrate new patterns inspired by what I'd seen. To complete the process, I screenprinted this original two-color pattern onto handmade paper.

The Secret Belgian binding style not only allows the pages to lay flat, it actually lets the front cover fold back, all the way underneath and out of the way.
