An old sketchbook

An old sketchbook that I bound with wood and leather.
So I used a very light wood.....Balsa wood, and I could literally poke holes through it, so it was easy to sew the leather spine with the front and back wood covers. Then hot glued a leather strap and buckle.
Bound 90 lb watercolour paper in bundles, and stitched it all together to the spine.
Ofcourse I filled it all up.....as far as I can remember it was filled with drawings of an Itzak Perlman concert, and other winter angst filled drawings in 2000.
