Recycled Sketchbooks/journals

vary in size, shape and cover materials (typically paper, although a few fabric ones show up periodically).

** these are soft cover books** typically a Western printmaking paper, which holds up well over time, but is not a hard cover material.


Useful for: sketchbook, journal, diary, to-do list, address/phone book, note pad, grocery list, sign in book, photo album, sticker album, anything really! Each book has a built-in pocket somewhere, because sometimes you need a pocket to hold things.


Recycled books make excellent gifts for people of all ages and interests - house warming, birthday, just-'cuz-you-like-them, stocking stuffers...


These little books are fashioned out of reused or found prints, papers, bags, fabrics, odd materials, and leftover newsprint from printing projects. I print on the cover material through the monotype process - many covers are made from prints donated by my lovely and talented printmaking students. Next, I tear down the interior newsprint papers to fit, and machine stitch the binding.


I began making sketchbooks for myself many years ago while studying art in undergraduate school. Classmates wanted me to make one for them too, then they wanted to buy a couple for their friends, and it soon turned into a regular project. I enjoy the variety and interesting character these books have, as each one is unique.


Made in Denver, CO by yours truly.
