hand-sewn sketchbook

Photobucket
i made my first hand-made sketchbook by binding rives BFK drawing paper and sewing the cover from patterned cotton fabric and off-white muslin for the inside lining.

in japan, it is common to hand-sew neat covers for bunkobon, or small paperback books, which is a good idea because sometimes, beautiful books have the misfortune of being published with hideous covers. i have a few examples on my shelf which deserve better dust jackets. it is also a good way to hide embarrassing reading material.

i shot, processed, and printed them on friday. they are all a little funny, underexposed, but i think it's charming. wabi-sabi; i am embracing imperfection. the very fact that they exist and that i made them is a little miracle.
