Sketchbook with Lay Flat Binding- Coptic Bound
Hand bound leather sketchbook. Spineless binding prevents the book from closing on you when in use. Great for sketching or note taking.
Filled with quality, medium weight sketch paper, suitable for graphite, charcoal, ink, or other dryer mediums.
Measures 6" x 9", thickness will vary with page count.
The Coptic binding process is one of the earliest forms of book binding with our earliest examples dating back to the 11th century.
Because the book has no traditional spine it will lie perfectly flat for more comfortable writing and drawing.
Most books fail when the glue does. There is no glue here to fail with heat or travel. The sewn binding is sturdy yet flexible and not sensitive to humidity or heat as modern books are.
Once the pages have been used up the covers can be sent back for refilling.

Frequently Asked Questions
Custom and personalized orders
I can do just about anything with leather.
If you have something special in mind, that's my favorite kind of work to do. Contact me and we can work out the details of your custom order.
Small adjustments like shifting dimensions and adding names, initials, and logos are always possible.
Thinking about something a little more elaborate?
If your request is something I have never done before I do accept these orders but only on a specific set of terms.
I've never made anything right the first time. The item doesnt just have to be made, it has to be designed, made, tested, redesigned, remade, and repeated as necessary.
Because of this custom orders may take several weeks to fill and this effort will be reflected in the cost.
I offer a service to help both instruct customers in the proper care unique to this kind of leather and to provide reminders when your leather should be due for a quick cleaning and oiling.
This takes the form of an email mailing list and a link to subscibe is available in the reciept of every item from my shop.
This list is never used for any marketing efforts, new product announcement, promotions, or any other such funny buiness. I've got a different list for that sort of thing.
I offer some of my items on a wholesale basis. Please contact me for specific details.
Gift wrapping and packaging
All stock items are packaged in simple, clean, brown packaging. Inside the box, your ordered items are carefully wrapped and nestled in clean, brown paper for a safe journey.
This is intended to be both unassuming to avoid attracting mail thieves, but still nice enough to gift directly.
Special notes for your gift recipient can be added in with the order by request.
When a custom order does not fit into one of my stock boxes I will substitute whatever is around, usually an Amazon box. If you would prefer cleaner packaging I can accommodate this by request.
