The Sketchbook Project is a constantly evolving library of handmade artists’ books, contributed by more than 22,000 people from 130+ countries. The Project encourages creative people from diverse backgrounds — working artists, full-time parents, busy professionals, students — to share their process with each other and the public. Participants sign up online to receive a blank book, fill it with work, and mail it back. The results are cataloged and archived in our storefront library, exhibited on tour in cities around the world and shared online. The Project operates at several points of intersection — online and offline; digital and physical; global and local; small business and arts organization. With one foot in the Web and another on the road, our passion is to inspire a wide-ranging online community to produce meaningful, tactile experiences in the physical world. This is the story of how a DIY approach to business, technology and creative work made a global project possible.
