Binding sketchbooks

15. May 2022

This time I would like to show you how you can bind simple sketchbooks yourself in a short time.
The advantages are obvious: you can choose your own format and decide for yourself which papers to use.
If you would like to learn more about bookbinding or have high-quality sketchbooks made, I recommend the AltstadtBuchbinderei Augsburg by Elisabeth Zelck:

Displaying circles and sunshades in isometry is not that difficult and with a little practice you will only need a few seconds. In this video I show you some tricks to get good results quickly.
Incidentally, the 2-day webinar “Drawing gardens three-dimensionally – Module 2: Isometry” is available on isometry

My Ferrara sketchbooks

11. June 2020

during the Diari di Viaggio Festival 2019 in Ferrara I had to try something out again…
The blue photo images were generated from my own photos taken in Ferrara in recent years. I then used Adobe Photoshop to color the photos monochrome with a blue filter. Then printed upside down using a color laser printer (with recycling toner). Using acetone, I was able to transfer the images into the sketchbook (before binding). If you would like to find out more about this topic, you will find further information on transfer technology in our “Download Premium” section.

Best regards, Daniel Nies
