Learn to make a beautiful and sturdy artist journal or sketch book whose longstitch structure is a favorite of many book artists. With a flexible, soft leather back, it uses few tools and no glue. Your book will contain a variety of artist papers, all protected within the strong and supple wrapper, embellished with a tintype photo sewn to the cover, and secured with a magnetic closure.
