UPDATE: now in a larger size! Japanese Stab Stitch Sketchbook hand stitched in a choice of 4 traditional styles with eco-friendly linen thread and tactile handmade cotton rag paper.
These Sketchbooks contain 28 pages (14 leaves) of medium-rough 210gsm handmade khadi paper, with thicker 320gsm covers. The paper feels soft yet substantial and it is gelatine sized for ink and watercolours. It’s fair trade and 100% recycled from the textile industry and features ruffled deckled edges that give the books a very natural feel.
Japanese Sketchbooks are incredibly pleasing to hold; they embody the wabi-sabi aesthetic that accepts natural imperfections. They make great gifts for artists who prefer natural, eco-friendly products.
SIZE Just under A4 landscape: 28.5 x 19 cm / 11.25 x 7.5 inches
NOTES: Japanese Sketchbooks showcase the natural variations of handmade paper; page size, surface and colour varies and edges are heavily deckled. Stab Stitch books do not open flat.
DELIVERY: Hemp Leaf in Olive is in stock and ready to ship worldwide. Other styles are made to order but unfortunately paper supplies are disrupted due to the Covid-19 pandemic and I do not expect to be able to make these books until September 2020 at the earliest. Please contact me if you'd like to pre-order.
