We all love art supply shops and it’s hard to visit one without buying anything. Beautiful sketchbooks for example are just irresistible and you may be guilty of stocking up on sketchbooks faster than you can fill them. Some are so pretty, and can be so expensive that it can be tough to crack them open and get started on a page.
Some students in the Sketchbook Skool community get around this by making those beautiful sketchbooks themselves and binding their own. Just like with any art or craft, they see the quality of their books improve with each one they make, and have a unique relationship with the surfaces upon which they draw.
We have covered book binding here on the blog before but as a refresher, here’s a few links to great book making resources and tutorials:
