The Sketchbook Project is a worldwide art project run by Art House Co-op which encourages contributors to produce handmade artist books. You sign up and pick a theme, they send you a book, you fill it and send it back, it tours the world, then it goes into the permanent collection at the Brooklyn Art Library in New York City.
If you’re in London before next Friday (19th Oct), make your way to Canada Water Library and you can check out the 2012 sketchbooks from contributors all over Europe (including our two, a couple of pages of which are pictured above). If you’re interested in creating one of your own, you have until the end of the month to sign up for the 2013 Project, and then until the end of January to fill it and send it back. Happy Sketchbooking!
