As someone who sketches out my ideas a lot I find that I go through a ton of sketchbooks. So as much as I love fancy leather sketchbooks I never really invested in one because once you fill the bound pages up you're pretty much done with them. But lately I've been getting tired of buying the cheap paper sketchbooks too because the cost of using those really adds up, and it always seemed like such a waste when I look at the pile of used sketchbooks I've accumulated. So I decided to make some kind of sketchbook myself.
To create this sketchbook I needed to solve 3 issues-- I needed it to be durable (since I would be reusing it), I needed a way to remove and refill the pages easily, and I needed it to be small enough that I could always carry it around with me. I picked a creme embossed leather because the color and texture reminded me of drawing paper and it allowed me to create a unique laser engraved design. I sourced a small sized metal binder spine that I could attach to the leather with rivets which allows for the paper to be replaced (easily and cheaply). Not satisfied with using some complicated closure system I designed a really simple system that involves pulling a leather loop through a notch and sliding your pen through it (which of course doubles as a pen holder).** The end result is something that I hope is not only functional and durable but unique enough to give as a gift to oneself or someone you care about.
*If you would like to personalize the outside spine with small initials (just above the peak of the mountain) you can include that in your notes when checking out, or contacting me after purchase.
**If you plan on using a really thick pen with this sketchbook just let me know and I'll adjust the size of the pen holder/closure.
