Finding the Art in Everything

27 March, 2009


This summer, I started making my own books. I really love my Moleskine, but I wanted something with the same design of different sizes, distinct appearance, and varying page count. I need to tell one notebook from another.

From my moleskine design, I kept:

  • blank, non-lined paper (a must! also hard to find in notebooks instead of sketchbooks)
  • a closure
  • a hard cover
  • pocket
  • a bookmark ribbon
  • and hand-sewn pages that lay fully flat
I added:
  • unique cover art
  • varying page count
  • wider page width
I have made about twenty now, and I gave most away as gifts. This is my most recent and some of my most favorite work:
