The Sketchbook Project

1-6-2014 6-49-55 AMI recently heard about this project based out of Brooklyn, N.Y. It is a traveling art show (basically). You order a sketchbook from them and fill it up however you wish – with sketches, photography, mixed media, etc. Then you send it to them and they include it in a traveling book tour that spans the world. Your book will ultimately be kept in a library.

While they send you the sketchbook – it is small (5×7), you can do whatever you want to it. You can rip out all the pages and add your own, rebind it however you want, etc. It sounds interesting, and I think I may try it.

Each book has a theme, and you can choose what theme you want your book to be. The choices for 2014 are Strange Neighbors / Borders and lines / A simple place / Accidents / Found! / Dudes and latitudes / To the last page! / First aid kit / Say words out loud / Paper airplanes / This list… / Atlas of… / Greetings from… / 32 Days / This is not about you / This is not about me /

You can find out more details and order your sketchbook here.
