When I go for walks I often take a sketchbook with me so that I can jot down visual notes about what I see and experience. If I’m on my own I might have time to do a detailed sketch,
All you need is a sheet of paper and a pair of scissors – and even the scissors are optional. I usually use cartridge paper because it’s stiff enough to hold its own out in the field. But any paper will do – earlier this year I forgot to take one with me on a very wet and windy walk on the beach in Lyme, so made a quick one from an A5 sheet of note paper I found in my pocket - that's it above.
- Put an elastic band or a tied thread round the spine of the book and slip some of the pages through
- Staple the book to a page or a page stub (a cut-down page)
- Stitch the book to a page or page stub.
