'The 1950's' Sketchbook

'The 1950's' Sketchbook
£18.00 1 Available
Love this


The inspiration for this book started with a fascination with the 1950's era, specifically the lifestyle and how women are portrayed in adverts throughout newspapers and magazines. I have sampled original clippings from 'The Post 1953' newspaper and covered my A4 sketchbook to create an original retro book. A contrasting khaki coloured cloth has been used to secure the spine and joints. The book is hard backed and sewn by myself so will open flat, perfect for sketching into.
The sketchbook has 18 pages of quality white 160gsm cartridge paper.
Measurements are 31.9cm W x 24.6cm H
Acid-free glue is used throughout the binding and on the covers to seal the images.

Hand made in the UK

As a painter and sketcher myself I have found it hard to source quality sketchbooks which have a personality and theme to them. I love vintage and retro clothing and furniture too, and as a follower I love to source one-off pieces. I aim to design my books exactly the same. Every book is unique with original cover images sourced directly from libraries, book shops and antique fairs. You will own an original book with character to use exactly as you wish.
