I am Le Petit Artiste – The Little Artist; a darling little mobile addition to your artist studio.

Measuring 1 ¼ x ¾ of an inch, I’m bound in rich chocolate brown reclaimed leather which has been buffed with a protective polish. I begin & end with snippets of olde printed paper about the Medieval Italian Zodiac. In between, I am filled with 36 landscape format sheets (72 pages) of archive text paper for your mini masterpieces. Hand torn, each piece has been tea-stained by hand and stitched with Irish linen thread.

I hang from a fine bronze link chain (links measure 3.5mm x 5.5mm) which secures with a lobster clasp. My entire length of 16½ inches (33 doubled up) means you don’t even have to take me off when the urge to sketch arises. Make little drawings to transfer to your larger sketchbook later on...

I would sit nicely with the artist, illustrator, nomad, flaneur, gypsy, bibliophile, bookbinder, wanderer, poet, librarian, thinker…and everyone in between.
