Just finished binding two more sketchbooks. I’d intended to make two books, but I’d covered the boards first and then when I gathered the signatures, I didn’t like the color combination.
So I went back into the paper stack and covered new boards in black and white for the already gathered signatures. While the new boards dried, I chose more papers for signatures in the horizontally stitched book. This time I used Arches MBM and Bugra (camel) paper with more blank pages which should make the horizontal book a little more watercolor friendly.
It’s fun, easy and I have no reason now to skip daily drawing and writing.
