At least one in every home.

I think todays spiral is well known all over the world.

I have several myself, but I don't like to write or draw in them. The spiral always comes in my way. This way of assambling papers is a fairly old one but the spirals are much more fancy today, or can be. I have seen alot of people that have their own equipment to make spiral bound books, that of course, gives them the opportunety to make something very personal.

I prefer to handsew my homemade books to avoid the spiral. Perhaps mine won't be as solid as the ones done with a spiral, but I can accept that. It's a good thing we're all different. The one I had as inspiration is one I use for sketching. The papers are a little rough so painting onto them doesn't work well.
Now it's harvest time, I'm off to pick the onions today.
Wish you all the best.


  1. Great and fun theme this week :)

  2. This is a fun sketch. I actually like using spiral notebooks or sketchbooks because they open flat...but I also like hand sewn books, too. A little of each is good.
