Wabi Sabi Sketchbook: cotton rag paper

Size Guide

Wabi Sabi Sketchbooks embrace the tactile beauty of handmade cotton rag paper, embodying the wabi sabi aesthetic of incompleteness, simplicity and 'imperfection'. Unadorned and coverless, these sketchbooks feature exposed spine stitching in linen thread and a linen ribbon to keep them closed and their contents safe.

Bound by hand in the French linkstitch, these sketchbooks lie flat on a table for ease of use and can also be turned 360 degrees in a circle for display.

Each Wabi Sabi Sketchbook has 64 pages of 210gsm handmade, fair trade, recycled cotton rag paper. It's acid-free and gelatine sized, suitable for dry and wet mediums including watercolour and ink. You could also use these books for mixed media, collage or stitching into paper. Scroll through the pictures for some ideas from my own Wabi Sabi sketchbook.
