I made this blank book by carefully removing the cover from a vintage book and then rebinding it with new pages.

The covers came from a 1954 school songbook entitled “The American Singer.” The book is blue with read and white accents, and the front endpaper features an illustration of children on a carousel.

I bound the book with a double strand of natural-colored waxed linen thread using the Coptic stitch, a very durable binding method that allows the book to open completely flat.

My books hold up very well to daily use, so go ahead and carry one with you for those unexpected moments of inspiration! I hope that my sketchbooks and journals will be well used and well loved.

This book contains 96 blank pages (48 sheets) of 90lb artists’ paper, which accepts a variety of media beautifully, including pencil, pen, charcoal/pastel, collage, and light ink/watercolor washes.

Size in inches: 8.25 x 6.25 x 1
