The Brooklyn Art Library in Williamsburg, Brooklyn is home to The Sketchbook Project.
“The Sketchbook Project is a collaborative series of art books created by thousands of artists from around the world.
Anyone- from anywhere in the world- can participate in the project.
Sign up to receive a blank sketchbook, then fill it up and send it back.
Your work will be cataloged in The Brooklyn Art Library. ”
You can check out finished sketchbooks at The Brooklyn Art Library for your enjoyment.
“Whether you have a second cousin who participated in the project, an inexplicable fascination with Iceland, or a love of pop-up books, we will be able to find a sketchbook for you. ”
“The library also functions as a storefront purveyor of notebooks,
art supplies, stationary and vintage ephemera.
So if you're feeling inspired after browsing through the archive of visual inspiration,
we'll have everything you need to start working on your own projects.”
Vintage ephemera, indeed.
Cool things around every corner.
I wanted every artistic soul I've ever known to be able to experience this place.
Amy, Lindsay, Rachel M, Amber, E, DrewJones came to mind...
I loved this place and I'm so going back.
Now if I could get the gumption to particpate in The Sketchbook Project myself...
