Artist’s Large Square Sketchbook, Fauna Nation Anthropomorphic Bear – 96 pages – 130gsm

This truly inspirational and entirely unique range of hardbound sketchbooks is hand-made from cover-to cover, in the age-old traditional way in Devon, England.

The cover is half-cloth bound and features stunning, rich, prints on linen textured paper (on the front and back) taken from an original illustration by yours truly, Mandy Flockton. This particular sketchbook is adorned with Bernard, a somewhat grizzly, woodsman in his Cowichan cardigan on a 60’s bark-cloth inspired background. The cover is sealed and hand waxed.

With 96 pages of bright, white 130gsm all-media cartridge paper, it is both a high quality sketchbook and an object of loveliness. Details include heavy, coloured and lightly textured end-papers, a head and tail band and satin ribbon bookmarker. The pages are each, individually folded for a distinctive saw-tooth fore-edge, a hallmark of Paper Dolly.

Each book is authenticated as hand made in England and individually signed by the bookbinder.
