Sketchbooks - student project

My sketchbooks are my sources of motivation and inspiration. When I realized that I decided to learn a simple techniques of book binding to create my own customized sketchbooks. From a line of homemade items my favorite one (On top) was made in collaboration with my son. He used a tea and a candle to color the paper and he ripped off his old jeans for the book cover:)! My latest discovery regarding the sketching is to use old (but useless) reading books, they have amazing old paper and text as Sketchbooks - image 1 - student projectbackground that give me great inspiration!
