Views from a Notebook

An inside spread

I’ve been experimenting with a different layout (for me) for my next book of drawings. This time I wanted the book to be similar to the original sketchbook so it felt like you were flicking through one of my books. So each page was done as a double page spread.

I’m still undecided if its the right way to go. Its almost the exact same size as a moleskine sketchbook measuring 12.5cm x 20cm. A moleskine is 13cm x 21cm. The one main issue I found was that the spine of the book is really tight so you lose some of the image where the pages meet. I think I was taking for granted the fact that moleskine sketchbooks open up totally flat.

Hopefully I’ll have it finished soon!
