In addition to drawing and teaching, I make artisan sketchbooks from repurposed vintage books. My online shop hosts a monthly giveaway, and this month you can choose ANY sketchbook from about 70 that are available right now. I use a velvety heavyweight Bristol vellum (70% recycled and acid free!) made by a heritage mill founded in 1908. You will love drawing on it!
To enter, just visit Bindweed Sketchbooks and choose your favorite sketchbook. Then come back here and comment with the name of your choice. On Tuesday, one winner will be randomly selected to win their sketchbook!
Because I love butterflies.
I especially love the vintage Fieldguide sketchbook of “Field GUide to Birds” the one that says Petersons’s since that is my go to field guide and has been for the last 35 years 🙂

Hello and thank you for a chance to win one of your beautiful journals.
I was drawn to the Bunch of Cherries journal. The cover is beautifully painted of a vintage lady. Thanks again.
I am a retired teacher so I would love a chance to win the Blodgett Primer Sketchbook.
I like the Heirloom seed packets: Green Beans one. They’re my favorite vegetable to grow.

Hi …I like ” Raven Wing “..There are are so many beauties and what a good idea to make sketchbooks out of them.
I love the antique butterfly sketch book monarch1. Butterflies are such beautiful creatures that I love to see them and also draw them. Would love to win this book.

The Quail would be my choice. I’m a bird watcher and have a collection of found feathers.

Love the Antique Butterfly – Monarch I. It is beautiful and would be a joy to create in.
They’re all beautiful, but I would select Antique Butterfly Sketchbook: Monarch I. (I’ve been following our Monarchs for years..) Thanks for this opportunity !
Adore the Monarch 1 journal. Seems not only vintage but French! A joy to look at. More joy would be in holding it!

Sketchbook: Little Red Riding Hood
I would use it for sketches of my granddaughter
I do love Raggedy Ann in the Deep Deep Woods enough that I have just purchased one copy of it. It brings me back to the kind of enfance I did not get. As they say better late than never. This will make me feel good 🙂

I really like the pocket sketchbook of the Herring Gull. It reminds me of the beach where I used to live

I love all of them. I already have two and have found both to be perfect for my artistic journey. It’s hard to pick a favorite from the current available sketchbooks, but at this tine it is the Antique Butterfly Sketchbook: Monarch II

My comment disappeared so I’ll give it another go. I love the Rose in Bloom sketch book. I read it as a girl and I love all the Louisa May Alcott books. Many thanks for you generous offer.
