Two of the sketchbooks now have "jazzed up" covers and are ready to go! Just in time, since my old sketchbook is full, and I am ready to start a new collage series. So this afternoon I will be working on preliminary sketches.
Several of you asked about where to buy a machine to do this type of binding. You can usually purchase the machine at an office supply store. Alternatively, Kinkos will punch and bind your books for you. I'm not usually patient enough to make a second trip back to Kinkos to pick up my sketchbooks, so I just wait until I am visiting my friend and use her machine to make several books at once. Plus, Kinkos used to complain about the thickness of the matboard covers.
