Making sketchbooks

Recently I have been spending some time making my own sketchbooks. I like making my own because when you make your own sketchbook, you can customize it any way you want.

There are several going on here….the following photos give you an idea of the process…

Below is the inside of one book….this is just before stitching the text block

Supplies

You can see the stitching below….I am using the long stitch.

This a completed book below….

Another book all set up to be assembled. I used copies of art from my sketchbooks as covers. I use a good inkjet printer and good paper.

Here are three covers drying. I give them an overnight or a full day for the glue to dry.
