I just received my gorgeous handmade sketchbook, designed by Yana Shvets for TravelArt, available on Amazon. Wrapped in red mulberry paper – my favorite color – I was excited to unwrap and discover the beautiful tablet tucked inside. Handcrafted from eco-friendly, acid-free mulberry paper by artisans in Thailand, I was amazed at how much care and attention were put into the sketchbook itself, as well as the packaging. My initial thought was to use this lovely tablet to sketch ideas for picture books, but I may use it for sketches of birds I see when I’m out with my camera instead – or I will simply have to purchase a second one! Either way, I am pleased to support such a wondrous product and talented artisans. Check out my gallery below, the sketchbook is lovely, yes?! Thank you Yana for your vision!
