Making a Coptic-Stitch Bound Sketchbook
In a few weeks, I am going on a trip, and I wanted to bring along a special sketchbook. My goal on this trip is to spend a lot of my free time sketching using quill and ink, exploring the medium, recording what I am seeing, and practicing drawing techniques.
For about a month I looked around trying to find a resource that sold sketchbooks with high quality paper, such a Twinrocker handmade paper. I was unable to find such a source, so I decided to make a sketchbook myself.
- (2) book boards specially made by Wolfiesbindery
- (4) signatures of twinrocker handmade paper, calligraphy cream heavy, text weight
- Waxed linen thread and embroidery need
And now I am excited to start using it!
