These sketchbooks are inspired by my favorite, almost square, sketchbooks that I bought in an art store in San Francisco in 1996. It was blue, and it was the perfect size for me. Then they stopped making them—oh no! I quickly commissioned a book binder to make me some custom sketchbooks, in the same size of course, as it was important to me that all my books were uniform on my bookshelf. I added some pockets to some of the pages as well -this way I could save even more inspiration. Well, now I am on my 14th sketchbook, and each one is very special to me.
I am very happy to be able to share these much loved and much used sketchbooks with you and your friends.
