Sketchbook

I picked up this nifty sketchbook a few years ago and then promptly lost it.
I finally found it (obviously) and now I think I will fill it up and record those drawings on my blog. (It is my blog, after all.)
Enjoy. (I’ll post updates about once a day but I won’t publicize it. So only those who follow the blog will be notified..Hint, hint …)

It is leather bound. Made out of a scrap piece of cow, I believe.

The cover wraps around. Smells like a baseball glove.
The paper is handmade; the texture has a coarse tooth to it. Nice drawing paper.

Smallish pages but it is highly portable. ¡Perfecto!
