A Concertina Skechbook is perfect as a creative art journal or travel scrapbook. Portable and compact, it contains 12 A6 pages and extends to a full width of 1 metre 26 cm!
Also known as an Accordion, Leporello or Zig-Zag book, this paperback Sketchbook contains 200gsm fine grain cartridge paper pages and delightfully tactile cotton rag covers at a thick 320gsm. The pages are suitable for all dry medium artwork, light watercolour wash and ink, for collage, photographs and swatches.
This Sketchbook is simply stitched in Olive waxed linen thread and features cover turn-ins which showcase the handmade paper's deckle edge. These turn-ins can be used to hold the book closed during travel.
The Concertina Sketchbook contains 12 pages with another 12 at the reverse. There are two joins on the reverse, made with hinging tape, but you should be able to work over these in your preferred medium.
You could even personalise your Sketchbook by adding artwork to the covers; the cotton rag cover paper takes all mediums beautifully (my favourites are ink and Graphitint pencils).SIZE: A6 portrait
Extends to: 1 metre 26 cm
